Dear Dr. Dara,
I am 30 yrs old. I have gone to school, actually have my major in one career and minor in another. I have changed career minimum 2/3x just in the past 3-5 yrs. Neither in path of my major. I’m at a pretty good salary and exteriorly it seems I’ve got it all BUT… I feel so far from that truth. I feel empty. I don’t feel satisfied with this career; doesn’t fulfill or make me feel as if I’m making a difference in others lives.
However, my parents and family love proclaiming the successfulness of me. Inside, I’m wanting to do more but between my family and my own inner voice saying this is what “success looks like” to others. Not too mention I am so dissatisfied with my outside appearance, even after cosmetic surgery. It’s just piling up and I don’t know how to get out of this all. What do I do? Why can’t I just be ‘okay’ with just being this me? Why do I fear being anything other than who I am “expected” to be?
