Question of the day? You dont have to answer in the comments if you dont want to, but I definetly think you should answer it to yourself. Since you’re the only person in your life you dont have to lie to. But the question is : Do you live to satisfy yourself or society around you? And before you rush to think yes or type “of course” . I really want you to mediate on it. Whether its the job that you aren’t happy with , the boyfriend or girlfriend that you choose because they are safe , the trips that you go on because your girls want to , or that regret you hold onto because you feel guilt. Now is the question as easy as you thought when you put it into that type of perspective.
If the answer is yes still , I really give you nothing but props. You have unlocked a freedom that many people haven’t had the privilege of doing, and the truth might not ever unlock.
But there are definitely the majority of us living for others approvals and opinions. People have the tendencies of making these their standards in life. It’s such a selfish thing to do to deny yourself a say in your own circumstances. You don’t get to choose your form of happiness, your morals. beliefs, your route to success. Its ALL snatched away from you by people that have no value for your voice.
The sad part it can be the people most close to you that do this intentionally or unintentionally. It’s spouses, parents, grandparents, close friends, mentors, spiritual leaders. They deny you a different route in life.
People can be so close- minded to ways that aren’t their own and you have to respect that. Understand the differences in peoples beliefs and mold your own standards around their perspective. All while still holding onto your views.
SO with all this being said mold your own perspective!
AS ALWAYS KEEP HOPE. HOLD YOUR FAITH. CONTINUE SELFISHLYGROWING.
