Second best

Every so often, we have a goal we want to reach. We do everything to reach it. Lust after it. Working hard. We are waiting for it. Calling it from the distance. We talk about it. We whine about it. We hope. Our dreams are there, waiting. The gold. The long road toward it. The satisfaction we know we’ll feel when we get there. So we wait.

But then when it comes…

Is it as great as we thought it would be? And we start doubting ourselves. Is it really the best? Is it really we had wanted all this time? Would we really be happy? And then we stop. Pause. And impulsively settle for the second best.
