So I see a couple posts a week talking about how other people in your lives are dictating the way you live, I just want to give me two cents on this from my own personal perspective.
The quote says it all, it's your life. Live it. Not for anyone else, not for your parents, not for your friends, siblings, teacher or whatever it's your life and you and only you have to live with the decisions that you make. Easier said than done right? Yea I hear you it's tough, other people opinions and ideas will always have some affect on you but it's down to you to sort it. I have a quote I like to remember, I can't remember 100% accurate or the person who said it I am sad to say and I will have to check it. It refers to Newton laws of motion, a object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by external variables. The quote goes something along the lines of 'this teaches us to eliminate external variables' this is referring to those people on your life that say you can't do things or try to sway your life. so what I am trying to say is follow your dreams not those of others and don't let their negativity stop you. I'm not saying it will be easy but it will benefit you in the long run.
