This is my story of finding my ikigai. Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ee-ki-ɡU]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". According to the Japanese, everyone has a hidden ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.

      1. Because the norm is to not see inside people. Everyone likes to pretend that they have it all together. It’s scary to be vulnerable so not that many people do it. And, when they do share their pain, people misunderstand it sometimes. They think the person is looking for attention or weaker than they are. It’s tough to see inside people and be right.
