In this century, people are getting busier in order to keep up with the high pace world and to me the most important thing is to keep everyone around you happy. Being a student who has been studying abroad for more than 5 years, handling a long distance relationship while helping out my family for their business, I totally realize how tough it is to balance my life.
I remember a couple of years ago, a friend told me that she didn’t have enough time to do all the things she wanted to achieve. Let’s not talk about taking care of our health, going to the gym and pumping up our muscles and crawling into bed and having our 7-8 hours of sleep per night. We still have to accomplish our missions at work, reserve the movie tickets for our lovers, go home and taste our mothers’ homemade dinner and let’s not forget the Friday night to meet our friends at the bar. Some people may even be studying as well. I really could only agree with her.
I am not sure about others, but to me, that seems a bit hectic. Sometimes when I go back home and give myself a minute, just sitting down on the couch, I would ask myself, why so few minutes in our life are really spend for our own sakes. Nevertheless, sometimes you think that you have been trying your very best to please everyone around you so your mom, boyfriend(s), friends, and your boss will not complain. But, for some reason, your still can hear others grumbling about you not being good parents, son, lover, friend, colleague, or the worst case: all of the above.
Who wants to succeed in all their various roles in their life? I guess we all do. Yet, I doubt that anyone really can. Thus my suggestion is to forget about being superb in every aspect of your life. There’s only so much you can do in one place, at one time. So, why not try to give yourself sometime. Do something you really want to, not because he or she wants you to. Last but not least, ignore the yakking from whoever is complaining. Or simply turn your music up louder and drown out the annoying sound.
