The harder you try to make things work, the worse they seem to get. But the end, or at least the turning point, appears as soon as you realise that you should be doing more things that please you. It sounds selfish, but it will help you return to your roots, get your bearings, and strengthen yourself for what lies ahead. There is nothing wrong with that.
