Also, just want to add quickly. I read through this thread and wanted to say…
Happiness is very subjective. The cheerleaders are happy with their materialistic ideals and you are happy with your higher capacity to approach and address the bigger issues.
But neither of you are happier than each other or better off doing the other thing, it’s all just a part of the bigger picture.
I hope you can understand what I mean when I say this and, again, I wish I could have chosen more accurate words to explain my point of view.. but I’m really running short for time.
And again, I’d love to hear from you.
