Why? Because it's too personal and it happens to me.
"I used to look up at the night sky and wonder, and I used to dream the dreams of a boy. I used to imagine that I was a superhero who could save the world. In an intro to one of our early albums, there's a line that says, 'My heart stopped when I was maybe 9 or 10.' Looking back, I think that's when I begin to worry about what other people thought of me and start seeing myself through their eyes. I stopped looking up at the night skies, the stars. I stopped daydreaming. Instead, I just tried to jam myself into the molds that other people made. Soon, I begin to shut out my own voice and started to listen to the voices of others. No one called out my name and neither did I. My heart stopped and my eyes closed shut. So, like this, I, we, all lost our names. We became like ghosts."
I always ask myself, "What's the purpose of me? Why do I even come into this world? Is this really the life I want?"
Like Namjoon, I used to dream a lot. I thought I can conquer the world and help people one day. But now I couldn't even find the purpose of myself. I have lost my way, I have lost my soul, I have lost my youth. Maybe this is the phase of adulting and every adult ever through the same thing. Worrying about anything.
"So now I urge you to speak yourself. I'd like to ask all of you - what is your name? What excites you and makes your heart beat? Tell me your story. I wanna hear your voice. I wanna hear your conviction. No matter who you are, where you're from, your skin color, your gender identity, just speak yourself. Find your name and find your voice by speaking yourself."
I wish he will give a nice motivation speech on Ted Talks one day.
