I’ve come to the conclusion that I spend too much time in my head judging myself from an outside perspective.
I’m constantly thinking about how I’m not living up to the standard – partner, kids, tons of friends, life filled with lots of social engagements.
So I’m constantly judging myself by that yardstick even though it’s a yardstick I never bought.
It can feel like I’m missing out on the magic and beauty of the life I do have by feeling like it’s less than because it looks different than most.
But I keep telling myself…life can be completely fulfilling and meaningful even if it’s not typical.
