In this fast-paced, high-pressure society, the life of a “worker” is always full of challenges. However, there is a philosophy of life that is quietly popular — “live for yourself”. As the Internet golden sentence says: “Life is not just about the present, but also about poetry and the distance.” Everyone has an island in his heart, which carries the yearning and pursuit for a better life.

In a sense, each of us is an island, drifting in the ocean of life, lonely and strong. As the British novelist Maugham described in “The Moon and Sixpence”: “Each of us lives alone in the world, imprisoned in an iron tower, and can only communicate with others through some symbols, but the meaning of these symbols is vague and worthless.” In this complex interpersonal relationship, we often feel that we cannot be truly understood, and we cannot pass on our spiritual treasures to others.

However, the reality of life forces us to face various choices. To integrate into the collective, we have to smooth out our edges, compromise with reality, and do things we don’t want to do. Just like those who have to choose marriage because of external pressure, they may have dreamed of pursuing true love, but in the end, they choose to marry the right one. This kind of helplessness and regret is something that many people have experienced.
