I spend a lot of time thinking about my life, where it is going, and if I’m making progress. Brian could tell you best how I will never believe that I’m doing well. For me, I could always be doing better. My parents didn’t twist me into thinking this, not directly, not abusively (like they may have achieved with some of my siblings), and yet I still turned out how I did.
Last time, I wrote about rejection. I mean to send good thoughts to a friend who’s struggling and prepare myself for rejection. Luckily (or not so luckily) I did not have to deal with any. As I continue on this path I’ve chosen, I’m dealing with a calm before a storm (of transitioning to a new job — more about this wonderful career job later). I’m comforted by the fact that I can see the
slow progress I’ve made.
It’s good to question, reflect, and re-evaluate your life, but remember to give yourself credit when you can. You only get to live once, so make sure everything you’re doing makes you happy and means something to you.
