Who Are You Living For?

Live Your Life For Yourself

I used to live my life valuing the opinions of others. Each decision I made, I would ask myself “What would _____think about this?” I hated to disappoint those that I cared about.

Eventually, I didn’t consider what I thought when I made decisions. As I’m writing this post, I’m thinking about all the opportunities I missed out on.

Not only did I miss out on opportunities, but I was unhappy. Once I became unhappy with my life, my thought process changed. If folks don’t like the decisions I make, that’s not my problem.

You can consider the opinions of others, but the key word is consider. The moment you forget that you matter is when you’ve lost yourself. You can’t afford to do that

Live your life for you and you alone.
