We are all on a journey through this rat maze we call life. Everyone looks at the tasks differently. My family looks at me as a failure because I am not married and am that much further away from starting a family.
I look at myself as a failure because I am merely a restaurant manager, not a directer with the company, or a work from home writer. I feel like one of those two would have to happen before I could ever consider starting a family.
That is simply one tiny example of the different opinion amongst people we encounter. All I know for sure is that I am on my life journey. At the end of the day, I have faith my mistakes merely lead to a more experienced path.
