I kinda pity one of my friends. It's not a sarcastic kind of pity but really I always thought she could do so much better in life without the constant opinon of a few others.
She is a kind of person who knows her stuff most of the time. She's determined and she knows what she wants. But yet her intelligence and creativity for her own life are constantly inhibited by opinions of a few others.
The opinion of a "few others" might just be robbing her of good things/people in life, and preventing her from enjoying her life to the fullest.
I guess sometimes opinion of others are OK, but there must be a limit to what others can tell you to do. People GIVE ADVISE BASED on their OWN LIVES and their OWN EXPERIENCES. They might not have gone through what we went through and they will NEVER know how it is like exactly, to live our lives.
So I guess at the end of the day, we have to live our own lives. We have to make most important decisions based on what we know, what we want and what we have experienced so far, and then make the wisest choice.
It is not a selfish thing to make important decisions based on ourselves. It is actually the BEST thing to do. You know yourself WAY BETTER than anyone else would.
We cannot always let others run our lives, isn't it?
It's time to run your own life and be who you really are.
