No one is watching me; no one is running after me

I’m ambitious, and sometimes I set unrealistic goals. One time, I realized that I’ve been putting too much pressure on myself. Then I thought, what am I doing? No one is watching me. No one is running after me. I can set my own pace.

I was so eager to race to success because I wanted to prove to others that I was worth something. But why should my life be for show? Who said I had to be successful by x amount of time? What if I’ll just enjoy the journey? I’ll just see where life takes me, and I’ll be grateful about everything that I experience.
