Something my mother said to me the other day inspired me to make this thread. We were having a conversation about how I feel like a spare part because I've dropped out of school, I have many personal problems and I'm trying to figure out what I want and where I should go. I was feeling like I was a failure and my mom said:
"Everybody measures success by different yardsticks. You should never measure success my somebody else's yardstick."
And it got me thinking, how do you measure success?
