"Be Who You Want To Be."

Friday, October 02, 2015

This quote is a quote that is beginning to resonate with me.

Sometimes I feel as though there is so much pressure from society to 'be' or act a certain way, or to follow a certain path.  There is a lot of pressure to conform, and when you don't you are viewed as an oddity.  There are so many barriers, and sometimes it feels as though there's not enough encouragement, support and good advice.

I recently came to the conclusion that no matter what you do - what decisions you make, what path you take, what choices you pick - there will always be someone who will judge you.  So who the hell cares what others think?  Why should I be something I'm not in order to avoid judgement and appease others?

You cannot please all of the people all of the time.  Life is for living for yourself, not for kissing the bums of other people.

One has to do what feels comfortable for them.  I decided to start a blog because I wanted to.  I decided to go to university because I wanted to.  I decided a while ago that I want a successful career in the media/PR/marketing because I want to.  I decided I wanted to study for a degree in Politics and Sociology because I wanted to.

I reached a point in my life where I started to make my own decisions (big or small) on the basis of my own expectations, not on the basis on the expectations of other people.  Over time I've stopped justifying and explaining my choices to others.  I don't own anyone an explanation.  And guess what?  I am so much happier as a result, because I made the right choices and I am reaping the (good) consequences which only effect me.

Ultimately you should do what feels right for you, even if it's the hardest thing to do.

Be who you want to be.
