I think as long as you choose, it’s good.

Only a life lived to be successful, grandeur, and ambitious is a life worth living. The life that you can brag about to your friends and family later when it's all over, and they will be genuinely impressed.

That's what we should strive for. Greatness and excellence.

Some people are most fulfilled with a quiet life. Striving to impress others shouldn't be your goal; impressing yourself is.

Meh. I used to be like that, where that lead me? Into depression and worse self-image issues. Sometimes it’s fine to scale back and reassess what do you want, outside all the worldly pressure. Not everyone can be in the spotlight and not everyone wants to.

Strive to be good to yourself and to others first and foremost and don’t set yourself to a pace you cannot keep up with. There’s plenty of cool stories to be made. They don’t have to be mind blowing to you but they can be to someone else.

I think words like successful, ambitious, and grandeur can be misconstrued.

Just strive to be happy as often as you can, whatever that looks like. Doesn't have to be big things, either.

Make a dinner. Join a club. Smell a flower. Go for a walk.

Just keep plugging away. You got this. :)

The people who talk like that wouldn't know excellence and greatness if it slapped them with a shovel

Like excellence in being a whiny entitled creeper whose Twitch DMs to female streamers go unfairly unanswered!

I didn't, but this post gave me 10 years before the regret sets in
