We Need to Let Go of the Pressure to Have it All

We try to have the most complete lives possible. We compare ourselves to other people and say "I want what they've got" like a greedy child in a sweet shop without stopping to realize that their lives are not ours and they are not us. Yet even when we have so much and our lives are full, still we seem to have a fear in the western world of NOT doing things.
