6 day of this 200 words challenge. Must say it's getting harder, haha but I am not gonna give up so easily.

You could get to know me a little bit more through my first 5 posts. As you can see I'm struggling a lot and don't know what should be my next steps in my life.

Keep my current job or start looking for a new one? But these are not the only questions I am considering in my head cuz I don't even know if I should stay in my hometown or move abroad for another adventure. 

My stay in Canada was a blast I am still remembering my days there. Like I was there alone the best thing was probably that I could really just care about myself and do just whatever I want. Yeah I know, it's not probably the nicest reason, but I really enjoyed that (of course I love my family and friends but sometimes it's really good to take a break).

On the other hand, if you are not planning to move to another country forever it's still kinda just escape from real life and you are postponing your responsibilities and that's why don't know if its the right thing to do.  Move, run away again...

What do you think?

Stay tuned. Efran.

    @efran Efran, I don't know why exactly, but I really enjoy reading your posts. It's like a real-time diary. I suppose most people keep these thoughts private and you are not doing that. Truth is always interesting.

    Anyway, it sounds like what you are really looking for is some meaning. "A man who knows his why can survive any how". I read that in Victor Frankl's Man's Search For Meaning . You should read it if you haven't already.
    I think it's very difficult to work with friends, but if you can be successful it's also one of the the most rewarding things you can do. But first, you need to identify your ultimate dream. A reasonable one, not something like partying on a yacht 24/7 while the money is rolling in.

    So imagine you had to work, you had some good and bad days, but you knew exactly why you were doing it: maybe it would make you more financially independent, it would lead to the stability to start a family, it would allow you to work while traveling the world, I don't know it's your dream, not mine :)

    So if you identify what you really want in life, or at least set a goal for the next five years, then you might find that working as hard as your friend on his company would be worth it, even if it's not what you like to do every single day. It's worth it because it will help you get to where you want to go, it will help your friend, it will help customers and maybe even help the world in some way. I'm sure if the company does very well at some point, you won't complain. (And if you do get serious about pursuing this, maybe you should talk to your friend about getting some ownership, to have some real stake in the business)

    If your goal is to start your own business you have to ask yourself: can I work as hard as my friend (you will have to), have I learned enough about running a business, will I achieve my ultimate goal by doing that? But you won't know why you're doing anything and you won't be satisfied in life if you don't have a target to aim for.

    This was so long it should've been my post for the day, sorry about that :)

      @gabrielgreco Thank you very much, Gabriel! I really appreciate your answer (you should definitely keep it for some 200WAD post hehe:)).

      Yes as you can see I am not trying to be a writer but its more just a diary for me here. That's why I am trying to be honest with my thoughts (also its still anonymous so I can be very personal) and hope it can be interesting for other readers as well.

      Actually, I have read "Man's Search For Meaning" very recently, its a beautiful book with nice thoughts.

      The biggest struggle with the self-help/ motivations books is that it's always easier to grab another book than actually do something with your life hehe.

      So far I must say I couldn't work hard as my friend buuut if there would be the right purpose and true passion I can make it . will see.:)

      Thank you again and have a nice day.
