In life, you’re given many marbles. Each marble represents a part of you that you can devote to something. And with each marble you can put it in a category represented by a box. In each person’s life there are soooo many boxes a person can put their marbles into, and each person has many marbles, so the best choice would be to evenly distribute the marbles to have an overall well rounded life. A person could put some in school, some in social lives, some in sports, some in family lifw, and some in miscellaneous, and they’ll amount to a pretty solid person. Unfortunately for some, it is quite difficult to do that. I am one of them. In my head I think, why put marbles in something I don’t really care about and be ”well rounded”, when i can put all of my effort into the thing I do care about and make the best of that. Seems like a good idea right?…well no. It only works out for some. Those some are the lucky ones that get to enjoy what they invested all of their marbles in. However, Most people that do this, like me, will put all of their theoretical marbles into one box they really care about, it won’t work and then they’re fucked. For example, a kid goes out for the football team and wants to play pro, so he says fuck school and does workouts and plays football during all of his time to get really good, and he does. But then breaks his leg and will never be able to play, and because he is failing school he can’t go to college. His dreams are shot and down and he has nowhere to go because he put everything he had into one thing and it failed. He lost his marbles. Or the kid that puts all of his time into a girl, puts his soul into a relationship, his entire life is centered around it and all he wants is to love one girl, only to find that she doesn’t feel that same way, and breaks up with him, moving on with the rest of her life completely fine. Then, he stays stuck in a rut always thinking about how he’ll never find a girl like her again. He also, lost all of his marbles. Truth is, to put all of your marbles in one box is to dream, and dreams are great to have, but to act upon them is usually stupid, unfortunately. That’s why I hate this world, that’s why I wanna give up all of the time, That’s why I have no motivation, that’s why I just want this all to end. Because to have a dream come through, you have to put so much into it, and when most of the time it doesn’t come through, you’re so utterly fucked. Realism.
