Don’t be a perfectionist. You don’t have to put yourself in a bucket. You are less stressed and working in your focused area without any FOMO.
It takes away lots of mental pain and expectations burden when you are not part of the herd. The world will leave you thinking you are crazy.
It is a super good state to be in.
My last ten years have taught me to seek mental well-being above everything. The no fucks given attitude has made me an asshole in the eyes of a few. I am okay with it. I don’t want the world to like me when I am part of their checkbox.
We are masters of our own destiny. It matters a lot to be stoic about your own true north.
