This month will definitely be a challenge for me. I want to maintain my social life, self-improvement, study, side hustle and part-time job. I realized, that it’s easier to manage only one of these things, rather than all at the same time. The problem is, I am also sadder, when I only do one monotone thing. I feel like, I’ve been isolated from the world I live.
I talked to my therapist about it a long time ago. She told me, actually, I need to learn to manage all of these things at once to have a fulfilled life. I felt, this is so unfair, since human can’t be good at everything at once. And I’m that kind of person, who wants to master in every area of my life.
This realization pushed me to accept, that I have to give up on the notion of being a master in one thing for a period of time. I accepted that I want a fulfilled life, where I’ll probably be enough or good enough in many things, rather than be excellent in one thing. This change forced me to learn to let go, things I could do better, but didn’t because I needed to manage other things in life, so my life still have enough support system and foundation to begin with.
Do you also try to juggle things in life and find a balance? How do you do it and do you feel content with how it’s going for now?
I wish you a superb week!
