    i used to feel like this, but then i remind myself that i’m getting an education, working part-time, spending time w/ my family, and being lucky enough to see some of my fav. ppl on the regular, so i find that i’m living life to the fullest as much as possible. does that make sense?

    it’s completely up to you what your definition of “living life to the fullest” is. b/c if you think partying, going out every night, and hanging w/ ppl is “the life” then nah. it really isn’t (at least for me). i find that as you grow older and you prioritize better, your perspective changes, and the questions you’re asking yourself change.

    i’m a really lame person, tbh. i’m not extremely funny, witty, pretty, athletic, or any of that stuff. i am who i am, and i can’t change that, nor do i wanna. i’m good w/ who i am, so i don’t find the need to question my appeal. it comes down to self-esteem and self-confidence. as long as you are happy with who you are, and you love yourself for that, i think you’ll be fine. the need to question your existence won’t be as important.
