if i had my way it would look like this.
for the majority of the world things aren't going to pan out like you dreamed it would when you were nine.
and what is honestly wrong with that?
there is no way in hell that when i graduated high school and set off for college that i ever thought i would end up working at a brush company and moonlighting as a server on the weekends. but is it really all that terrible? are all of my bills paid and sometimes i have some leftover to buy things like cat knick knacks and other fantastical things i don't need? yes.
we set ourselves up to fail when we assume things will magically fall into place and our dream job will fall out of the sky into our laps or that your prince charming will magically poof out of nowhere and do things like take out the garbage or shovel the walk way the first time you ask them. it's just not realistic. and then you end up some bitter piece of shit because you built everything up in your mind to be something that it's never, ever going to be.
