My recent experience showed me that you can get all you want and be the richest person in the world, but if you don’t have anyone to share it with, it does not mean much. This is a (unfortunately) new understanding for me because I have always been goal-oriented (goals that did not include family or friends) and I have not been isolated this much.
With that new understanding, I want to prioritize people that are already in my life more from now on. I am not sure how to do that, because my family is too far away and my friends are also leaving now (we finished school at the same time, so now is the time everyone goes to a different place). Currently, I do not have a good idea on where to start, which sometimes gives me feelings of regret that I should have done these much earlier when I had more people around me. But better late than never.
The way the world is set up now pushes us towards more isolation. Individuality is generally celebrated more, which is not a bad thing, but it becomes one when it becomes the primary goal of life. It was my goal of life for years, and I can say from first-hand experience that it is not ideal.
Let’s discuss our lives: what we prioritize in life, what we could have done better, what we can do about it now etc.
