I've thought about this a lot but have never been able to put it succinctly into words.

I do think people are responsible for defining their own meaning and direction in life, but with digital media bombarding us with stories of the ultra-rich, ultra-beautiful, and ultra-influential, it seems easy to have one's expectations tilted in an unreasonable direction.
