Society has a way of thinking what success truly is.
Is is exotic women, foreign cars, NFTS, or an absurd amount of crypto? Well, I would think I am set for life if I have all of those things.
But as of lately, you need balance.
Balance between getting drunk off your ass every weekend to mingle with women you will never see again to finding stocks that will keep financially sane in your office chair.
All I ever want to do is work my ass off since that is the quota for everyone in their early 20s, “ work hard now, enjoy later”. Sounds corny & cringe to an extent but everyone I see I don’t want to end up like has me thinking, I better start working like someone has put a bounty on my head.
Contrary to the fact, that working all the hard time seems very tiring because you just want a break from the world and don’t want to think about anything else.
I’ve been stuck in a mindset where I can’t relax because I am not where I am not in life but balance is what holds the mold together.
You can’t have a PB&J sandwich without one of the other. They have to go together or simply it won’t be the same.
I don’t have it all figured out but finding it will help me from falling into the ocean.
If you understood that metaphor, kudos to you.
