Getting a job while studying, at the same time to build a future can get very hectic and requires a lot of commitment. It’s hard to have time for yourself, which makes it difficult to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. We find a lot of college students who work and study at the same time to make ends meet. This generation is very competitive, it is necessary to have an idea about your educational and career goals in life. Being a student means wanting to achieve something great. This also includes the desire to want something better than your peers or to get something that’s the ‘current trend’.
All of us love to keep up with the latest trends and have the most popular or the most impressive piece. We feel the need to keep up with the rest of the world and compete with all the people. We start working hard and start raising enough money to be able to buy it, and by the time we do, the trend has changed. Society continues to change and trends change with society. Keeping up with trends can get extremely tricky, at the end we only end up wanting more, which could lead to disappointments. The race to be ‘perfect’ does more damage than good.
Discover what makes you happy, living a less materialistic lifestyle doesn’t necessarily mean you’re withholding from all the pleasures of life. It simply means moving your focus away from articles, so they seem less important. Trends never last, so you don’t need to keep up with all the trends, make your own trend. Own it!
