quoting sartre, "existence precedes essence", which means that the most important consideration for individuals is that they are individuals—independently acting and responsible, conscious beings ("existence")—rather than what labels, roles, stereotypes, definitions, or other preconceived categories the individuals fit ("essence"). the actual life of the individuals is what constitutes what could be called their "true essence" instead of there being an arbitrarily attributed essence others use to define them. thus, human beings, through their own consciousness, create their own values and determine a meaning to their life.
i believe life is a continuous self disovery. it doesn't have to move like a linear graph following certain sequences the society demands you to do. it's a journey from one tiny dot to another one to another one continuously, interconnected, each with its own story.
i also think that life is about telling stories. what makes life interesting is the fact that there are so many different kind of lives out there. there are infinite variations of life going on. which is the reason why we read books, we watch movies, we travel. and we craft our own stories, to be as interesting as it could be, not to any specific audience, but to ourselves. so here, is a little fragment of my stories.
