Let me put you an ideal form of life; you earn well, your spouse as well, both of you have successful career paths ahead, kind of bright future. You live in a beautiful apartment, probably out of the city, and have a nice car. You work hard at a multinational, and have a good network if possible. You attend some language or art classes, do sports regularly, go and see the must see movies and concerts, have your holiday abroad and renew your wardrobe each year.
So you are successful, trendy, busy, happy, sure and confident.
Or you are playing the role of your life, trying to achieve that ideal through all that long years, setting higher standarts as you get older.
Nobody's life is perfect, or expected to be. It is easier to be who you are, and to me it is completely normal to be confused and unsatisfied especially when you are young. I just don't understand how some people, who I used to know well, are so ready to get into roles that stand so much away from where I stand in life. I am not happy when I am not happy, what a pitty.
