Do you deserve to succeed? Do you deserve to be happy?
These are questions most people ask themselves a lot. I certainly do.
I don’t know how to know the answer. What does it mean to deserve something? What does ‘happy’ or ‘successful’ mean?
Let’s consider the possibility that these questions are stupid. Questions without a realistic answer aren’t worth asking. The best you can do here is a hesitant ‘I don’t know’, and that’s not exactly an enabling answer to those questions.
If you’re asking yourself these questions consciously, stop. Find better questions and ask yourself those instead.
