I am going to Six Flags, followed by a cocktail party this Saturday with my friends. I deserve to have fun after an awfully exhausting and irritating week at work. And I am going to get me a latest trendy gadget, an expensive new shoe and an attractive profile picture in Facebook. This will make me feel worthy again. And I really want to be ready for Monday.
In other words, I constantly need to compensate myself for the amount of pain that I chose to go through every day in my life.
But things doesn't have to be this way. We all exist to serve our own purpose. And we all know that. It's just that we are too busy to explore what our purpose is.
We are too busy to realize one simple thing. Inspiration is the opposite of compensation.
