Why We Shouldn’t Measure our Current Achievements against our Personal Aspirations

The bravado of youth, our perceived invincibility at the prime of our lives, and the media’s framing of what amounts to success, shape not only the nature of life.

A great deal of our stories is clash between personal ambition and societal realities. However, it is human nature to have goals, aspirations and dreams in life. They could be simple goals or ambitious ones. Some are realised, others never materialise.

I think instead of dwelling on what we fell short of, we can take inspiration from the lives we touched even in smaller ways like showing kindness to a stranger.
