what fills your jar?

‘You pour yourself into the thing that measures you and it defines you.’

‘My worry is that what you measure yourself with ends up defining you.
And I just hope that one day you find out that you’re fuller
when you measure yourself in love and people and moments,
instead of things, adoration and money.’ (quoted from here)

It’s not that hard to tell what you use to define yourself, the things you pride yourself in.
It’s okay, everyone has their own bits and pieces.
Maybe i was too settled and got curious with your stuff in your container.
i tried to fill my jar with the same stuff that you use to fill yours.
Most of them are like broken acrylic
The bits and pieces are small and pointy.
made of plastic, scratching my jar everywhere and barely filling anything.

It sucks to focus on things, money, adoration and other superfluos what nots.
i’m sick of feeling insufficient, feeling like i’m made up of numbers,
like i need to laboriously improve stupid numbers.
it’s time to reset and redefine.
