Sometimes we try to get something that we can’t achieve. People chase unrealistic dreams with no thought of the consequences. It is a bummer and it will lead to disappointment and self hate. If we go for smaller goals, for dreams that we can actually reach than we will be happy.
This doesn’t mean that we are not to dream big, because of course dreaming big leads us to challenge ourselves. But if we challenge ourselves to the point that we are so exhausted that we are stuck, challenge is just making us tired.
