This post right here is something that I can, and I am sure many can relate to. Thanks Chris, you continue to inspire me.

At 26, I’ve been stifled by a pressure that many people my age are facing at this moment in their lives. Why am I not where I want be in life at my age? Why am I single? When will I start a family of my own? Why haven’t I found the job that I know I am qualified for? Am I settling?
At some point in my 20s, I have asked myself every last one of those questions, seeking results to confirm that I’m on the right track. Slowly but surely, all my wild and crazy friends who never said they were settling down and being with one woman are getting married, starting families, and now I’m feeling like the odd man out. The boys’ nights have turned into family nights and suddenly no one is available to hang out anymore. I have some of the greatest friends ever who are like family to me, so there was never a time when I was jealous or upset, but through witnessing their reality, I begin to evaluate my own.
