The first person to understand is yourself

Everybody can get stressed

It sucks. It's hard. You feel terrible

When the going is tough

If you can't manage yourself, understand yourself, and tell yourself why you're doing what you're doing, things get even harder

But finding yourself is no simple task

Traveling, eating, talking to friends....none of that will really tell you.

I don't have a silver bullet

All I can say is what worked for me.

LOVE

Giving love and caring deeply for people around me helped me understand what was important to me. I would host dinner parties. Didn't matter if people loved me

PURPOSE

It's not easy to discover purpose, but ask yourself: What impact am I making with what I do? Do I like it? If so why?

MINDFULNESS

My mind was moving too fast all the time. I started taking daily walks and meditating with the Calm app to clear my mind. It helped

It's not easy.

But you can make it through.
