I like to be different. But I do not know why.
What would set me apart?

Why do I want to be different?

What do I want to be known for?

Why is it important for me to be known?

Is it to validate that I have influenced and inspired people? Why would I like to inspire people?

Maybe a sense of insecurity that requires external approval of my ideas, “Hey it works and it helped me!” for me to feel useful to this society.

Why do I feel insecure?

It is a big bubble of confusion. So many things I would like to do, a gazillion different things I am interested in.

I admire those people who have one goal and they just go for it.

Why do I admire them?

But I am not them. I am me.
