These modern times have made it incredibly easier for us to fall in the trap of chasing perfection. We constantly try to keep up with the Joneses and in the process keep our own priorities and happiness on the back burner.
Identify what you really want, not what you think you should want, and just go after it. There’s nothing selfish about pursuing things that make you truly happy, in fact, it’s one of the most selfless acts you’ll ever do in your life.
Are you constantly putting pressure on yourself to get that big house, that sporty car, or that prestigious job? If yes, do you think those things will bring you the joy that you’ve been seeking all along? Or maybe there’s something else that you know resonates best with you, something that you know you must direct your time and energy to?
It’s time that you stop caring about the societal script and what other people want you to do with your life and just focus on what YOU want to do. You are the star of your own movie. We all have our own unique journeys, and no one else can see inside your heart and soul and understand what sets them on fire and what truly makes you happy and fulfilled.
It’s your life and it’s best to live it in accordance with your own hopes, goals and dreams, not someone else’s. You are the one and only person in charge of designing your life.
Instead of pleasing others, focus on pleasing yourself. You’ll live a much more peaceful and joyful life.
