When your friends and peers are constantly normalising a pattern of behaviour you disagree with, you start to feel a little crazy. In order to fit in, you compromise by internalising your feelings, squashing them deep down into a never ending abyss.
Jason Zook explains, “By chasing the perfect anything, you’re essentially riding a Ferris wheel. As soon as you think you’ve reached the end, a new set of ‘problems’ arise and you continue going around in a never-ending circle. Instead of going around and around, focus on creating and trusting the path you create for yourself. The one you won’t be able to see laid out perfectly in front of you.”
