Like that

I was having a difficult start today. Another day at home and still not really able to grasp what is going on exactly, and maybe worse, not knowing what to do about it… So I tried to find some information on the web.

I came across this dutch documentary on Quarterlife crisis called “All We Ever Wanted”. It follows four young, creative, ambitious people who live a shiny, happy life, so it seems.

2010. The sky’s the limit. Anyone can be a star and beautiful and popular. So, why aren’t you? Our dreams are big, wild and infinite. In an environment of ‘more is better’, ‘enough’ no longer seems to exist.

Gradually it becomes apparent what it takes to keep all the balls in the air. What do they demand of themselves? How did they get to that standard? They do not want just too much? Slowly their doubts and fears come to light. The film offers a disturbing look behind the scenes, the greater the illusion of success the more bitter the lonely hours at home are.

The stories are very recognizable. Their backgrounds, their dreams, their fears, their panic, their insecurities… and so forth… Not really found a way to deal with this, but hey… what do you expect… Right, ‘too much’…

There was a link posted to one of the songs in the documentary which I loved.
