My Thoughts on this Course
I decided to post my thoughts about this class as a whole and wanted to reflect on the knowledge I have acquired throughout the semester. I realized that the books assigned all contained the common theme of personal change and transformation (both for the good and for the bad). I now believe that growth as a human being requires a passion for something, whether that something is “experience”/”knowledge”, companionship, family, etc. The desire to pursue your passions allows you to thrive and satisfies the desire to have purpose. When you no longer have a passion or purpose you rot, you merely exist without meaning. This idle existence takes a toll on your health and corrupts your mental state. You crave purpose and may consume yourself with trivialities as a substitution for genuine passion. I encourage everyone to expand their interests, uncover your true passions, and pursue them to the fullest. I believe this is a key aspect in self-growth and is a milestone on the path to leading a prosperous, vibrant life.
