My biggest weakness is how hard I am on myself. I put a lot of pressure on myself to succeed. I think if I'm not doing everything in my power to succeed right at that moment, then I'm not using my time wisely. I'm always thinking about the future and what my next move is. And if I don't feel like I'm doing enough to be impressive or successful, I feel really bad about myself.
I put too much pressure on myself to look impressive and to look successful. I need to appear driven, balanced and determined at all times. I don't even allow myself to consider what makes me happy. In the last six months, I've pushed myself farther than I should have. I took on way too many responsibilities, and I felt miserable at all times. I didn't even do a good job of balancing them. I felt like if I wasn't pushing myself to get experience and improve my resume, I wasn't allowed to feel proud of myself. I never just allow my accomplishments are "enough". Although a healthy amount of drive is good, there is a line, and I tend to cross it.
I've recently let go of a lot of responsibilities, and I've begun to do the things that make me happy, rather than the things that make me look impressive. Trying to conform to what I believe society deems "successful" is exhausting and unhealthy. I have a lot more free time now than I've had in over a year, and it feels scary and exciting.
I've taken a lot of pressure off myself, and even though I have those negative thoughts telling me I'm not doing enough to feel good about myself, I have never felt more content and balanced with my life.
I used to believe success was a linear progression. I used to think there were certain steps to take to get where you're going until you finally arrive. But success and life are nothing like that. There are high's and low's and plateau's all the time. Some chapters in our life are meant to end, and that's OK. Some things that used to be good for us can no longer be good for us, and that's OK. We can change our minds, we can change our direction, and we can change our goals. There is one pathway to a successful life, and I need to learn to take my own path and not the one I believe society expects me to take.
I'm currently in a transitional period of where I don't know where I'm going and exactly what I want, and I'm trying to find joy and excitement at this stage. I want to live life in the present, and I want to be happy to be where I am right now. Although goals and a drive to succeed are important, it's just as important to be happy in the present and content with what we have now. I know that one day I'll figure out all the things that confuse me right now, and I'm doing great where I am right now.
Fully paid for version.
I’m on iPad Pro 10.5
*TIP* If crashes, reopen app, then long press, choose paste *BAM* all your work, up to the crash point should be back.
3 stars because LAGGY, CRASHES OFTEN, AND KEEPS MOVING AWAY FROM MY AREA I AM EDITING IN. FIX THESE DAMNED THINGS PLEASE.
MY ORIGINAL POST:
I spent over two hours editing, crashed and didn’t save my work, nothing there after I re-launched the app. I’m wiring this review off that energy.
The whole time I was editing, don’t know if this mattered or not, I was in landscape mode, editing a certain portion of my document.
The whole time, non stop, the app keeps moving the field of view away from where I am editing, on its own, just moving to the next area of the document needing editing or whatever.
That’s cool - but WAIT until I get there. I shouldn’t have to fight this app and keep bringing the view back to where I AM editing the document. After all that, it crashes. I went back there and hit paste, and it was all my work right up to the crash!
MIRACLE! Dev needs to make Poole aware of this life saver, I almost went back and copied the old version. That was VERY close.
Laggy, SUPER LAGGY.
Rome Total War the game has HUNDREDS of AI scripted soldiers on the battlefield. No where near as laggy as this.
