Lately everything seems like a race. It’s a race to get into a relationship first, to get your degree first, a race to get your dream job, a race to start driving first and get a nice car first, a race to move out first.
Everyone is racing against everyone else to do everything first.
When everyone has finished one race they’ll start another. Everyone will race to get married first, to start a family first.
And then the race will start all over again. It’s never ending.
Everyone is trying to be better than everyone else and yet no one really seems to notice that we’re all racing against each other. It’s tiring, constantly trying to be the first one, trying to prove that you’re just as good as everyone else. Why do we always need validation from others that we are enough? Can’t we be enough for ourselves alone?
