So my advice to anyone is this: Give. Up. Not on yourself, or your dreams, or your life. Give up on other people’s expectations of you, give up on hiding your true self away, give up on doing what you think you should do instead of what you want to do.
There is no right or wrong way to live.
You never truly know what life has in plan for you, but expecting certain things by certain ages will be one of the only things that will kill you while you’re still alive.
There is no perfect job, no perfect friendship, no perfect family, no perfect relationship. And no matter how hard you try, it will never be perfect. So it’s always best to just love what it is instead of wishing for what it isn’t.
I think it’s easier for us to want than actually work for what it is we are trying to achieve.
When I talk about the right approach to imposing your high expectations on others, I do mean it. It’s just essential to find the golden middle and try hard not be too intrusive or putting too much pressure at a time.
You expect to find a lover who can give you it all.
Instead, learn to love him the way he is, accept that he will not change, and know that choosing to love him meant choosing to love his flaws as well.
When in fact it’s fascinating to look at someone and just fall… no hesitations, no expectations. Just fall in love freely.
People are so quick to judge this generation for impersonal texting conversations or a missed call because a phone died. (Is in a ditch somewhere? He must be in a ditch if he isn’t answering his phone.)
