Three things that I do not understand:
1. People fall in love at X speed.
2. They fall out of love at 2X speed.
3. They have mental health issues at 3X speed.
– Parents not paying enough attention
– FOMO, because everyone on social media seems sorted
– We think we need someone else to complete us.
How to get out of this loop:
a. Get validation through who you are and what you do
b. Get validation through good books, videos and podcasts. They are super super super underrated.
c. Spend time alone. Daily. Outdoors. At least 30 minutes. If that could be a nature walk, nothing like it!
Believe it or not, the phone IS responsible for all the problems.
Believe it or not, work from home is causing issues at home and at work.
Believe it or not, we need to be more grateful, not more depressed.
Believe it or not, reading good books does solve all the problems.
Believe it or not, we need to make time for free time daily.
Believe it or not, it will only get better when we make it better.
Believe it or not, meditation, good videos and morning and night affirmations ARE magical.
Believe it or not, but in our hearts, we know that what we spoke above was the truth…
“I just hate this job.
I’m gonna quit!”
Have you ever felt this way about a job / client / internship?
If you have, we all are a part of the same boat.
However, here’s a few question:
– Do we want to quit because of envy?
– Is this the same way with every job?
– What kind of life do you want?
I came across this startling realisation while reading “Your Next Five Moves” by Patrick Bet-David, and the enormous clarity he offered in an instance in the book.
And when you do, here’s another piece of advice from Mark Manson: “The person you marry is the person you fight with. The house you buy is the house you repair. The dream job you take is the job you stress over. Everything comes with an inherent sacrifice — whatever makes us feel good will also inevitably make us feel bad. What we gain is also what we lose. What creates our positive experiences will define our negative experiences. This is a difficult pill to swallow. This is why our problems are recursive and unavoidable.”
Finding answers to these questions isn’t easy, however, that isn’t what you signed up for in the first place, right?
So, what kind of life do you want?
