Health VS Success

As a young adult, I see my classmates lose sleep, trying to “finish up that project.” I see my parents going to work early in the morning, when they should be visiting the hospital instead. I even see myself drinking coffee to stay awake, typing away on my keyboard. 

My friend compares a picture of herself now and a picture of herself back then. She looked so much happier and healthier as a child.

Since when did people value their success more than their health? We need to keep our priorities straight because when was it okay to skip family gatherings to do homework?
