A strange analogy, but we have a tendency to think quantity is better than quality. Having ‘more’ was once a sign of status quo. But how does this affect our mental health? Well, by putting expectations on ourselves to be able to stay ‘afloat’ we are inevitably putting stress and unneeded expectations ourselves. This can have a domino effect throughout our personal lives. Further, the more we strive for what others think is greatness without finding out what we think is greatness the harder it is to keep going.
However, if you are not able to leave your home in fear someone is judging you based on your clothing, we as a society has hit an all-time low. Everything is ‘ok’ if we wear leather sneakers or brand shoes, but what stressors are in place to get those? Are we not happy with half a glass? Do we have to have more than one? Who gets to decide someone’s happiness? Ultimately, your happiness is guided by your desires and dreams not someone else’s’. A generational gap has contributed to this because what was once obtainable and acceptable has now changed. So now, nor are we stuck trying to prove our greatness to our family and friends, the work world has brought us back to square one. The beginning.
