Thought for today:
‘Chaos is more freedom; in fact, total freedom. But no meaning. I want to be free to act, and I also want my actions to mean something.’
— Audrey Niffenegger

We set goals and become fixated on achieving them.
We tell our friends in a process social psychologists understand fools us.
Telling other people feels like we achieved our goal in a subconscious way.
Then we either achieve our goals and feel lost (grief) and/or set new goals.
Or we don’t achieve our goals and become self-critical or even call ourselves a failure.
All the time we seek freedom, the ability to choose, chaos.
If this sounds familiar then I would suggest that perhaps you need to find meaning not milestones.
