‘’ You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not – do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you, or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you, or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy and of your worth. You get to be your own validation. ‘’
DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF
Don’t compare yourself with others. That’s when you start to lose confidence in yourself. We all have ups and downs and there is nothing called a perfect life. You may not see my struggles or personal issues on social media, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t have any. It may not be similar to yours, but there are definitely rough times between the good times.
Focus on your own life and invest in yourself. Every minute spent on comparing your path to someone else’s is a minute lost on creating your own. Accept where you are in life and work your way up to your dreams.
Over the years, I learnt a lot about different kinds of humans. It’s not easy to detach from people you’ve had close ties with but sometimes you have to cut some of them from your life.
My circle became smaller recently, but I’m much happier now. There’s more peace in my mind.
I don’t feel the negativity or unnecessary thoughts about others anymore. Honestly, at this age I only want to focus on my own life.
DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
We are all pressured in different ways, but it’s important to do something for yourself. This can be anything. Make some time for yourself and find your joy.
Finally, don’t let your fear decide your choices. Free yourself and create your own world.
