Hi Everyone! How are you today? I hope you are all well! 🙂
I just want to share this random thought of mine the other day about a simple choice and decision that we made in a day. I am talking about how we decide on what and where to eat what to wear and what to do for a day. The basic!
I just realized that why is it every time we want something or we want to do something we always ask others opinion? Like for example, at work we don’t have lunch and you decide to order some food and then you start asking your colleague what to order. (TBH I’m one of them.) Why do we keep asking what to eat where in the first place it is our tummy? It’s ourselves who is going to eat not them. You’re the one who is going to eat that food not them. Or let’s say you saw a nice shirt/dress or pants at the store and then you tried it. It looks nice on you and you want to buy it but you ask your friends or sisters/siblings if it is nice on you or you will ask them like. “Hey Am I going to buy this shirt or not? What you think?” And then they said, “don’t buy them ’coz it’s too expensive, or too bland for you” or worse “it doesn’t look good on you.” And you listened but deep inside you were so sad and hurt that you didn’t get what you want.
It’s funny right? How we honour others opinion and advice so much yet in the end we feel unhappy and uneasy. We are only talking about the basics here but how much more if it is about our life /future?
The problem of asking the opinions of others is that they always give you advice from their viewpoint, or their shoes. Remember that we are all different. Maybe it was okay for them but not to you.
If other people’s opinions of you are more important to you than your own… then how can you expect to live a life that’s true to you? How can you expect to ever stop worrying about what other people think of you? How will you ever feel free?
It’s OK to listens others advice but sometimes it is also okay to listen to yourself first. You know why, because nobody knows better than yourself. Nobody can tell how you feel.
“Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision that upsets others. You’re not responsible for their happiness. You’re responsible for your happiness.”
Don’t depend on someone’s decision; it is your choice. If the people around you disagree don’t mind them; it is your world so you decide.
As Rachel Wolchin says “People too often forget that it is your own choice how you want to spend the rest of your life.”
Your life your rules. But remember this:
“You are free to choose but you are not free from the consequences of your choice.”
So what’s you think, my choice or yours?
Have a nice day guys! Thanks for reading.♥
