“Do what makes your soul happy.”
It has always been one of my favorite sayings.
The most important thing in your life is your happiness.
You could live to make everyone else happy but when you get in your warm bed at the end of the night, cuddled up with blankets, the darkness, and left with your thoughts; that’s when it hits you.
You have this deep pain that resonates from within you, making you uncomfortable in your own skin.
The smile that you may have carried on throughout the day, wavers entirely.
Your thoughts feel like a looming dark cloud. You do everything you can to avoid them.
Maybe if you act happy, you will be happy. You are making all the people around you happy so that’s all that matters.
That’s what you repeat to yourself over and over again.
The truth of it all is who gives a shit about anyone else’s happiness?
Make your decisions based upon your own values. Don’t think about what your parents, friends, acquaintances, or what people on social media will think.
You are not them.
You are not living their life.
You are you.
You are living your life.
Your morals and views may differ completely and that is okay.
What makes you happy, doesn’t have to make anyone else happy but you.
