It’s one thing to daydream; it’s an entirely different story to dream with your eyes open. I praise the people that know when to stop, but then at the same time, as they flaunt it themselves, don’t you just get the urge to knock them off of their pedestal? Know your limits, I think that’s an important skill to have, not because I think people should deprecate themselves, but that they should know your worth. Playing to your own strengths is worth much more than trying to take on someone else’s; knowing when your daydreams are merely that is worth everything. It’s painful to watch people realize dreams and fail, but after a point, it’s hard to care anymore. I think all these attempts just end in bad relations when people don’t know when to just stop. Look at all the catty confrontations over relationships, or the anger that comes from the competition of being second best in grades that’s gone on, for some, since kindergarten. If you ever feel like you’re in the back seat, don’t try to drive the car. Get yourself a new one; follow your own path.
