I secretly love reading the reddit group r/relationships for people’s relationship drama.
The other day, I read a story about a middle-aged guy who feels like he didn’t accomplish anything in life and is bummed about it.
For some reason, this lead him to think that he should leave his wife and/or have an affair.
This story made me really sad.
I hear from so many people who fear that they are not making a difference, and that their life’s work “has amounted to nothing.”
I used to feel that way myself. I hope that most of those people don’t think an affair is a solution to their problems! :P
I wondered what if, instead of fixating on an affair, this guy acknowledged his desire to make a difference in the world? To have a meaningful life? What would happen then?
I do think there is a lot of fear and worry about acknowledging our desire for meaning in our lives.
Would love to hear your thoughts:
💥 Do you acknowledge your own desire for meaning and accomplishment?
💥 What thoughts and feelings come up when you acknowledge what you want to accomplish during your lifetime?
All thoughts welcome.
