Will the people in your life always support your decisions? No, they won’t. But you need to remember that life is not about justifying yourself, it’s about creating yourself. Your life is yours alone. Others can try to persuade you, but they can’t decide for you. They can walk with you, but not in your shoes. So make sure the path you decide to walk aligns with your own intuition and desires, and don’t be scared to walk alone and pave your own path when you know it’s the right thing to do.
Make this your lifelong motto: “I respectfully do not care.” Say it to anyone who passes judgment on something you strongly believe in or something that makes you who you are. People will inevitable judge you at some point anyway, and that’s OK. You affected their life; don’t let them affect yours.
And remember Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional.There’s no reason to be ashamed for feeling something or acting out on it if it’s real to you. Showing your emotions is a sign of human strength.
