You have your own timeline.
You are not a ticking time bomb that deserves all the pressure from your friends or the one you love. Especially from the one you love.
You do not need to want the same things as they do. You don’t need to conform. You don’t need to fit in the same box as everyone else. That imaginary box will suffocate you.
Your journey is on another path. It’s not too late. It has its own perfect timing. You are your own timeline.
Never too late. Never too early. Just in time.
You can shut out all of the “out of time” BS you hear from everyone. Yes, everyone. This includes even the ones who are supposed to be patient with you, the ones you thought would be supportive. The ones you thought would be the first ones to embrace you because you’re not there yet. The ones who you thought would cheer you on in the sidelines. The ones who are supposed to love you unconditionally.
You can shut them out. You can tell them to fuck off.
Your life is completely yours.
You don’t owe anyone an explanation, especially for why you do what you do and when you do it. You are responsible for your own actions. Your decisions. Your decision to move on. Your decision to start. Your decision to end. Your decision to love.
Your timeline is yours, and while people may influence you, you have the power not to engage. Yes, it is possible. Know that you can, and that the decision is always yours.
You can command your life the way you want to. You are not out of time or too early or, worse , too late. The only time that matters is your time.
And when you get to that moment that you’ve always wanted to be in, feel that exact moment. Breathe it in. Embrace it.
While people will help you get to where you want to be, know that it has always been you. Your hard work and dedication got you there. Your unrelenting motivation got you there. Not anyone else’s. It’s was all you.
