It's hard to know what that aching feeling in your chest is when everything is going well... I discovered by writing this that I needed a purpose, a role to take on, I needed to do something that mattered to me. I couldn't just sit by and keep trying to tell myself that life was going great when it really wasn't. I thought long and hard and finally figured out what I needed.
Something I've realized lately is that the more clarity you have in your life, the better it is. I believe a lot of the mental health issues young adults face today could've been avoided, had we just had the opportunity relax our minds more.
