Confusion is a haze. A cloud that enters our mind dimming any clear views. In a world engulfed with so many storms, confusion reigns. Feeling confused is akin to experiencing a question in the form of an emotion. If you’re feeling more confused than ever lately, don’t worry the world is (and has always been) a very confusing place. Harness your confusion for good, and try to find order in the chaos through gaining more knowledge. It truly is power.
