Society makes some standard to make you feel successful/happy. When you achieve that you feel successful and when not you feel you have failed.
This is so true apu. Here ,its the only thing people can think about. Here, we are measured our worth in degrees. Its like a slow disease and it too takes a toll by destroying our sense of freedom. After a life long marathon chasing success we are left with only a few memories to cherish and live by.. Thats not life. Thats how machines would live if they were conscious.
