What do you want??
Over the past while I have and still am discovering who I am and what I truly want for myself.
People think they know what they want but if you actually listen to what they are saying most of them are repeating one another. They (I am guilty of this as well) say what has been ingrained into their minds by parents, groups of friends, media, culture and religion ect. And many people find it always a struggle or fight to obtain these things "we want". Maybe the struggle is because it is not truly what you desire but you have been trained to believe it is what you want so you continue to struggle and for an image you don't even truly care for.
Nobodies true desire and being is better than another. If you are an outdoorsy person who loves animals and wants to travel on pennies made from bartending, then do it and love it and appreciate it and don't be ashamed. If you are a person who takes 2 hours to get ready in the morning goes to a corporate job and likes to shop on their days off then do it and don't be ashamed, be proud. Or you can be someone who loves to dress up and go out on the weekends, loves hiking and being outdoors but while always wearing makeup, then do it proudly. The point I am trying to get to is be who you are and do what you enjoy. Following the social norm will not make you happy and will always be a struggle. There is no right or wrong way to be, or better or worse way to be just listen to what you truly want to be and who you truly are and follow it and you will be happy and grow. The process and path you follow will also be a smooth positive path rather than a fight and struggle.
Listen to your true self for only your true self knows what will make you happy.
