Usually due to past failures, most people settle for a life that’s convenient or comfortable. Whatever dreams they had when they were full of hope and wonder started to diminish as they stepped into the real world and constantly got knocked around.
Life is tough and for people who have the courage to continue pursuing the life they want, there will be even more setbacks and challenges waiting for them. For this reason, most people would rather go for something easier. It may be less exciting but at least the chances of pain will be much lower.
There’s no right or wrong path to take when it comes to going for your dreams or settling for something easier. Dealing with failure sucks and unless your desire for that dream life is so intense that nothing can stand in your way, the frustration and disappointments might not be worth it.
In the end, as long as the choice you make leads to happiness instead of regret, that’s all that really matters. Just keep in mind that you’re stronger and more capable than you think.
