Settling for way less than you deserve is a trap in which we can all fall. It’s normal. But what isn’t normal is to continue to live our lives from that dreadful and unhappy place.

If your work doesn’t bring you any joy and your paycheck is the only thing that excites you, then that is another clear sign you are settling.
