Nowadays, there is so much pressure not only for women but for men too.
According to the society we live in, we need to have certain behavioral patterns, to dress like everyone else, even to choose particular career paths.
Who has the right to tell you how to live your life? You have the amazing opportunity to spend your days however you want to. So stop listening to what others say, and start trusting your own intuition. That’s how you’ll make the most of your life, and you’ll achieve your dream goals.
Do you want to know the shortest way to find happiness?
Do whatever the hell you want to.
Indeed, this sounds easier said than done, especially if you are a person that puts everyone else’s happiness before your own. Maybe you are the one who tells your friends to chase their dreams, and to listen to nothing else but their own hearts. And yet, you are still not following your own advice. If you truly believe that’s the right path for your friends, wouldn’t it be the same for you?
What you need to do is stop waiting for something magical to happen to start following your dreams. You should be doing the things you truly enjoy and clear your mindset from every negative thought you may have. A huge step in the right direction would be to stop giving a damn about the opinion of others.
One thing is for sure – there will always be someone to disagree with you or tell you you’re not good enough. This shouldn’t stop you from living the life you deserve. Besides, the ones that care the most for you and genuinely love you, will support you no matter what.
In reality, it’s not that difficult to start doing what makes you happy. If you want to see the world, book a ticket. If you feel uncomfortable in your friends’ group, meet new people. Don’t settle for a boring job that will fully drain your energy and you’ll be doing only for the monthly salary. Find a career path that will truly excite you.
If you’re unhappy with your life, it’s up to you to change that.
All the answers you need are already within you. You are one inner monologue away from making the first step towards becoming the badass person you’ve always wanted to be. And if you don’t really fancy the idea of “talking to yourself”, you might as well keep a journal and go back to it every time you forget your true motivation.
Moreover, undoubtedly there is someone in your life that will be there for you whenever you need them. Sharing your thoughts and dreams with a loved one will definitely help you feel better and keep doing what’s best for you.
Live your life the way you want to, not the way others think is right for you.
Oftentimes, people around you have no idea what’s going on in your mind. Many of them think they know better than you what’s the best path for you, but they can be absolutely wrong. No one knows you better than yourself. That’s why you need to listen to your heart and trust your instincts.
And even if you make mistakes on the way, they will teach you valuable life lessons. Failure is one of the best teachers because it makes you humble and strengthens your mind. So don’t hesitate, and do whatever the hell you want to. That’s the only way to success.
Remember this: You don’t have to fit into each and every one of the society’s standards.
You are free to love whomever you want, to wear whatever you like, and to be whoever you want to. Embrace your unique personality. Finding confidence in yourself is truly empowering. It doesn’t matter who disapproves, who disagrees, and who tells you you are not worthy of living the life you dream of. If you genuinely believe in yourself, everything else will be insignificant. That’s how you will truly enjoy your life.
So, stop worrying about what would people say, and start enjoying your life to the fullest. You were born to stand out, not to fit in.
