IDK ideally stands for the term "I don't know." But for me the term stands for a couple other things:

1. You are afraid to show your true inner feelings.

2. You're trying to hide something.

Or 3, you simply don't know.

But what I want to ask you is; when do you most often hear the term

"I don't know."?

Is it when your mother asks for directions on the side of the road and the person answers, "I don't know where that is."? Or is it when you ask you're your sister, a college graduate, to help you with a math problem and she says, "I don't know the answer."? Or say you ask our crush, "Do you like me?" and they respond, "I don't know yet."

You see, there are different contexts the term "I don't know" appears, but it's your job to find the meaning behind that wall they just threw at you. Things like I don't know are spoken millions of times a day, all around the world. Some of us just shrug it off thinking, "Who cares?" But what I'm here to tell you is; you should care. You should search out the answers until you or they can say confidently "I know." And that's what matters, because honestly, if you don't have answers to the questions asked, how are you going to succeed in life? – You can't.

Now before I get too caught up with myself and my newfound wisdom, you should know I didn't always know this. In fact, I was one of those people who just thought, "I don't know and I don't care." But something big happened to change all that foolish thinking. That's why I'm writing this, to share with you my life story. And, you guessed, it, it starts with "I don't know."

Okay maybe you didn't guess that but I'm not going with the whole Once upon a time thing blah blah blah, okay? I'm just not into that, and now you know.
