Discussion on: 7 uncomfortable truths about being a developer.

I spent most of my 20s burning myself out trying to prove myself better than everyone else around me and all it did was destroy my character until I reached a point where I wasn't comfortable with who I had become. I worshipped money and success above all else.

It finally occurred to me that the majority of people in the world are average and are incredibly happy to be so. There's always going to be developers smarter than myself. There's always going to be tasks I could have solved in a more elegant matter, but regardless of what happens, it is up to me to be happy with where I am at and grateful for the path I have chosen.
