The saddest truth is, no one ever wants to see you doing better than them. I truly believe that people are unsatisfied with their lives. At this point in time, there are too many reasons to be sad. College graduates are in debt. Depression rates have risen due to the picture-perfect lifestyles depicted on social media. The hookup culture is alive and well thanks to dating applications. Everything is instantaneous. Being sad is a choice though, so how do you simplify your life? What can you do to make it better?
Honestly, the moment you compare your life to another is when you become unhappy. Focus on yourself. Ignore everyone else’s accomplishments. Your life is not about being like everyone else. It’s about breaking your own limits and growing to live your best life. You are not in competition with anyone else, so plan to outdo your past rather than other people. We often forget that how you wish to spend the rest of your life is your own decision.
If you want to spend your weekends drinking in a bar with your best friends, then do it. If you want to become a fitness guru and look hot in a bikini, then do it. If you want to travel the world and help underprivileged people, then you should. If you want to be married young and have children, then you should. If you want to focus on your career over your personal life, then do it. Do what makes you happy. Focus on loving yourself rather than the idea of having people love you. I’ve been so busy loving my life that I do not have time for hatred, fear, or regret. It’s the best feeling. My personal and work life is great. I’m doing well mentally, physically, and emotionally. I have no complaints, it’s a wonderful life.
Most importantly, I just wanted to give my 500 subscribers and 102 followers a shout out for following me on this journey. Your love and support means the world to me. What would I do without you?
