It’s no secret that we’re juggling countless things at once: being the perfect friend, spouse, child, worker, etc. On top of that, we’re also being pressured by everyone around us to always be happy, achieve more, work harder, do more. It seems like a vicious cycle that won’t end well for anyone. To do any of these things right, we must be the best version of ourselves before we can even start thinking about the outside world.
