When You Rely on Worldly Accomplishments to Define Your Worth, You Will Ultimately Feel Like a Loser
But lately I have been noticing a disturbing trend that has both surprised and discouraged me. Every time I read about a former friend or colleague, specifically the ones that are closer to my age, my excitement and pride for them soon gave way to my deficits and insecurities.
Amid the grieving from a major loss, it is not surprising to want to return to the way things were. But for as tempting as it is to wish for things to return to “normal”, the fact is you are just wasting important energy needed to facilitate your healing.
I was reading an article that stated 51% of people between the ages of 18 and 34 do not have a steady romantic partner. It also mentioned this trend is up from 45% since 2016 and continues to rise. The author concluded there are no signs this pattern will reverse any time soon.
