Never compromise your personal values, to appeal to the values of others.

“Do what you love” disguises the fact that being able to choose a career primarily for personal reward is a privilege, a sign of socioeconomic class. Even if a self-employed graphic designer had parents who could pay for art school and co-sign a lease for a slick Brooklyn apartment, she can bestow DWYL as career advice upon those covetous of her success.

If we believe that working as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur or a museum publicist or a think-tank acolyte is essential to being true to ourselves, what do we believe about the inner lives and hopes of those who clean hotel rooms and stock shelves at big-box stores? The answer is: nothing.

I know what it feels like, and it sucks, it really does, when you are up in the middle of the night thinking about the things that you’ve suddenly became aware of. The things you’re missing out on right now, and all the people who are not close to you anymore, and all of the good times that will never happen again, and all the people who have meant the world to you who have forgotten about you forever, and you get this awful feeling that’s kind of like a mix between loneliness and nostalgia.
Abraham M. Alghanem, Summer and Autumn

I’m feeling kinda down. I wasn’t among the list of candidates chosen for an interview for the JET Program I applied for last fall. I know I put my best foot forward and, looking at the list, I realized I had a whole lot of competition. I have long accepted that the only thing in life we have control over is our own actions, and that we have to relinquish attachment to specific results to be happy. Nonetheless, I really thought I had a strong application and that this would be my ticket out of this place. But I’ll keep moving forward and find another path.

If you’re so funny, then why are you on your own tonight?
And if you’re so clever, then why are you on your own tonight?
If you’re so very entertaining, then why are you on your own tonight?
If you’re so very good-looking, why do you sleep alone tonight?

You have to learn to say no without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to respect and take care of yourself.

Remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of these three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences. No excuses. No negativity. No psychic pollution. Keep your inner space clear.
Eckhart Tolle
