But if you can't go more than two weeks without getting a new hairstyle, or a new love interest, you need to chill out.
According to Glamour magazine, constantly starting over is not going to make you a happier person.
Psychiatrist Anna Fels wrote the book "Necessary Dreams." And she says that North Americans view their life choices as more "disposable" than other cultures do. Meaning we're more inclined to bail out of a situation if it gets tough, instead of working through it.
For example, we stay at a job for an average of 7 years, whereas Europeans stay for 11 years. And the average length of a first marriage is also 11 years in Europe, but only 8 years in America.
But she says it's naïve for people to think they can restart anytime and still achieve their goals. Often, you have to ride out the rough patches in order to get ahead - whether it's at work, in a relationship or otherwise. Because if you don't, you're always going to be chasing an impossible dream.
But by fighting the urge to flee, Fels says you'll develop the sense of stability that people in other countries have. A stability that gets you one step closer to what you want.
If you'd like to go further, that book again is "Necessary Dreams."
