The stresses of not being exactly where you want to be. Lawd! Nobody couldn’t tell me that at 25 I wouldn’t have been married, with a kid and one on the way, running a multi-million dollar business, with a private jet in my backyard. The stress of not being exactly where you want to be. But where exactly is that? Successful? You haven’t made “it” yet… In comparison to who though? My definition of success needed to be reevaluated, because judging it from the rates of my peers was not the route to go. Shiittt. I struggled a lot with this, and it only pushed me to work harder. Had to constantly remind myself that everyone’s journey is different. It’s hard though when you have people in your ears telling you “You have so much potential”. And in your head, you’re like STFU, I know that, thanks for adding to my stress.
It’s always refreshing to see people who have figured out what they wanted to do with life and made it happen speak about their journey, and most times, at 25, they had no idea who they were, much less what they wanted to be. It’s comforting to know that I know what I don’t want, and I think knowing that pushes me closer to my goal. But until I figure out exactly what my niche is, I’m enjoying the ride.
