Ah. I feel you brother. There was a time I had to leave the internet (all of it) for a month because I had a hard time keeping up with my goals and my expectations. That was January this year.
A lot has happened both on and offline. I’ve had the chance to gain much self-awareness. Let me not even get you started with how my marriage is showing me what kind of life I want and the person I want to be.
Like you’ve mentioned, I believe in remembering why we do this all.
I don’t write as much as I used to on Medium. And although the money wave rises and crashes, I remember to make sure it doesn’t bother me even though I need the money.
What I’m learning now to do is really do what I can. Simply.
Like you, I want to change the world by starting with me, my world. That should be enough.
I want to end by wishing you courage on this journey. It’s not easy when everyone seems to be on some speedboat of some sort. One thing I try to keep in mind is that I don’t know what their dealing with, what’s driving them, and what demons they have to fend off.
