The Unknown

I am scared of the unknown.

Vague intro, I know, but have you ever thought about it? Aren’t we all scared of just the unknown? People are scared of animals because they don’t what happens when it bites or something, they don’t know how much pain it’ll bring or if it will at all. People are scared of heights because they don’t know what will really happen once they fall. People are scared of the dark as they don’t what’s lurking behind it. And that’s it, we are all scared of just the unknown. Whatever our tiny minds can’t comprehend or make sense of, scares us.

So now, what about the future.

I was once excited for the future. To see what it brings, to see what all might happen, but right now the future scares me, again, because I have no idea what it brings. Growing up, scares me because I suddenly realise that some things are not gonna be the same anymore. Everything that the future awaits scares me now becasue I am not ready to let it go. I am not ready for life as it is now to end.

Once again, maybe things would be better, but just becasue I don’t know it, I am scared of it.

The new year starts tomorrow and even though I am ready to leave 2021 behind, I am not ready to embrace 2022.

Yet again, I have understood that somehow letting it all unfold is probably all we can do. Maybe the end doesn’t matter, maybe I’ll live through so many more new things, maybe, just maybe I can mix my past joys with my future happiness.


Happy 2022, guys✨

That’s what you call a ramble, i guess😅

Yet, let me know what you think about my thoughts. Lets talk about our plans for the new year and the (scary) concept of future. Waiting for you in the comments

  1. Deep post here friend. When you feel this way, it is best to give it to God.

    Psalm 34:4
    “I sought the Lord, and he answered me
        and delivered me from all my fears”.

    Philippians 4:13
    ” I can do all things through him who strengthens me”.

    While we can try to do things on our own, God is able to help us in dealing with our fears. God is able to put things in order for us and to make things work out for our good. To overcome fear, we need to put God first. God is the king and there is nothing impossible for him to do.

    If anyone reading is interested in building a relationship with God, I have a post on that here: https://christcenteredruminations.wordpress.com/2018/08/29/how-to-build-a-relationship-with-god/

    There is much more to know about God. I post frequently on my blog about topics related to God. You are welcome to follow my blog to keep up with my content. https://christcenteredruminations.wordpress.com/

    -All the best. May God bless you.

  2. The unknown is interesting…after all,what’s the point of living if there’s nothing more to discover?Yes,it can be a bit scary,but then again,what’s life without a few risks? Well written ramble(if it is a ramble,it was quite intriguing) 🙂

    so much uncertainty, at least knowing i’m not the only one gives me hope

    1. Same here, kim
      On 31st my reader was filled with cheery posts and I wasn’t feeling that way. Me too, when people comment that this was how they were feeling gives me relief that I am not the only one sulking on new year

  4. You are right the unknown is SCARY and I normally start panicking when I think too much about the future cuz I don’t know what it holds and I can’t control it and that definitely causes me a lot of panic but I think it’s better to take one day at a time specially in times like this when everything is just SO uncertain and remember that we should not thing the worst of the future cuz yes it might have bad shit but it will have good stuff too you know
    Anyways Happy New yearr sorry for the lecture

  5. Having just a vague (callback to the second line😄) idea, I think, about what you’d like your future to look like and also about your past mistakes and experiences, good or bad, is enough. Living in the present is the best you can do because you can only control the present. I mean, we can try to control some future outcomes but that’s just a result of our present endeavours. Don’t worry too much. Be in the present. I know it’s easier said than done but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.
    Cheers!
    Happy New Year!

  6. Wish you a very happy new year Akshita!!! I totally get you. Yesterday I was up till 12:30. As soon as the clock struck 12, there were firecrackers and so much noise all of a sudden that I was startled. And I wondered what everyone was celebrating and why. It’s just a passing moment. Just a scientific date that could have been set by them any other date. I wanted the clock to stop. I regretted the passing year and I fell sad to see the date 2022 as soon as I turned on my phone. Is it just me? I don’t want anything to change and I am scared of the uncertainties of the upcoming year. Just like every other new year. What a viscous cycle isn’t it.

  10. You don’t know what the future brings! It’s one of those things you can’t control. You just have to trust. Future will be better! Let’s just enjoy now. And change is the only constant when it comes to life. Isn’t it?
    Btw, great post, Akshita!❤

  11. Omg, I agree so much. This paragraph is literally how I feel right now because of term 1 results-
    ‘I was once excited for the future. To see what it brings, to see what all might happen, but right now the future scares me, again, because I have no idea what it brings. Growing up, scares me because I suddenly realise that some things are not gonna be the same anymore. Everything that the future awaits scares me know because I am not ready to let it go. I am not ready for life as it is now to end.’

  12. What a thoughtful post.
    Future thoughts might be indeed scary sometimes, but again its a life. Nothing stays the same on this universe. It will go the way it have to.
    There’s nothing we can do as a human except embracing the future possibilities to continue to live this precious life.

    Anyways, wishing you success, wealth & health this coming year. 💐❣

  13. its better to be skeptic than to not be! not only you but everyone have their fears! another set of 365 days might just be scary!
    just focus on the celeb if there is one today😃. Sometimes last day of this year is so overrated that it just exemplifies scary thoughts!!

      Happy almost new year!
