Solving the Incomplete Puzzle

After college graduation more than a year and a half ago, I thought I had a clear picture in my mind for what I wanted to happen. I had very specific ideals and goals I wanted to achieve, but I ended up not accomplishing much of anything as time went on.

Life’s puzzle for me at this point seemed hopeless and impossible to solve. I felt frustrated and incompetent because I couldn’t get the pieces to fit.

This led to my worst experiences in my life, where nothing but sadness and shame made up my well-being. I had brief moments of joy when I managed to slap a few chunks of the big picture together, but all of the completed areas were not enough to tell me what life wanted me to do.

But fast-forward to present day, and this personal puzzle is finally making more sense to me. I now can see that I just needed to persevere and not give up. Puzzles only win if you stop trying to figure them out, so I exhausted the puzzle’s possibilities until I started connecting more and more areas together.

The puzzle is far from being finished anytime soon, however, but I know one day I will finally see what the whole picture looks like.
