25. I quit letting anyone think for me and learned the importance of questioning everything in order to be able to fully think for myself.

27. I quit being a follower and instead blaze my own trail.

28. I’m quitting the way the world expects me to be. TC mark

    What are you doing now? Because have quite allot of things. The most things you stop doing I really understand why.
    Because you must do what you want to do. And no one can say who you are and what you must do!
