Do Things For YOU!

Hello Everyone!

I’ve noticed that there are so many people that look to others for approval of the things that they’re doing with their lives. I just have one question, why?

I understand completely what it’s like to want to make people proud of you but I’ve found that continuously trying to make others proud forces you to put what you want in the background. Your life is supposed to be about creating your own path. Things may not come about as quickly as some of the people around you but you have to remind yourself that it’s okay.

I personally applaud anyone in this day and age who is actually continuing to further their education because it’s not an easy thing to do. No matter what kind of school you attend, an education is just that and that’s the overall achievement here. Even if it isn’t the school other people would like to see you at, it’s still an achievement regardless.

I think that if you know what it is that you want to do and you’re working on making that happen, do it! Do whatever it is that you feel you need to in order to make your dreams come true. It’s going to be hard because you’ll feel like you’re letting people down but it’s the first step in changing things for the better.By constantly doing things for the benefit of other people, you tend to forget what it is that you want for yourself. It’s lovely that there are people out there that want you to achieve things but you have to realize and remember that they might not know you as well as they think. It’s like having someone come up to you with a law opportunity that they think will be good for you but you’re interested in nursing; it just doesn’t fit.

Most people would go ahead and take that opportunity anyway because it’s what someone close to them wants them to do and thinks it would be good. By doing that, they put the possibility of finding programs and opportunities they’d enjoy more on hold.

Now, I’m in no way saying that making people happy is a bad thing. I just believe that it’s more suitable for a person to do things that they know are best for them and not what other people think is best for them. If you agree with something someone else brings to the table, by all means go for it. If you don’t agree, don’t force yourself to do it. What you want for yourself needs to come first. ~Brittany NaShara
