Stop listening to everybody around you.
Stop following aimlessly.
Stop making excuses.
Start going after what you want.
Don't apologize for those decisions.
Some decisions you make will be wrong.
You will fail.
Some decisions you make will be spot on.
You will succeed.
Some decisions you make will just be.
That's OK too.
You know what you want. Your friends and family know what they want for you.
There is a monumental difference between the two.
It's the difference between being happy and just being.
You can't please everybody.
Most people won't agree with you.
Agreement is safe.
Acceptance is safe.
Doing what you've been doing is safe.
