" If you knew how quickly people forget the dead you'll stop living to impress people."
Yess finally someone said it.
I don't understand why it is hard for everyone to believe that none of us are getting alive out of here. Whatever you do will be soon forgotten by people. Yes, those same exact people because of whom you did it. And the only reason is that people don't have time to constantly think about someone else, they have their own life. Yes, they may make fun of you for a day maybe a week but later they'll just move on and forget what you did. But you, you will remember it because YOU did it. Soon, you'll realize that everything was in vain. You will regret why you tried so hard to impress those people. You will regret why didn't you listened to your heart and followed it.
So, just stop thinking about what people think of you and listen to your own heart. Love yourself. Embrace your flaws. Change your thoughts and they will change you. Be kind. Be silly. Be weird. Stop comparing yourself with others because there is no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it's there time (not a new quote, I know ). Challenge yourself every day to be the best version of yourself. Remember nothing changes until you do, so be the change you wanna see (thanks Mahatma Gandhi). Learn and grow from your experience because everything happens for a reason, you just have to be patient enough to find it. Live in the moment as if you'll die tomorrow. Be happy. Happiness comes from you, it's within you. Be grateful for whatever you have. Expect miracles because they do happen. Have faith. Believe that you deserve the life of joy. Accept yourself the way you are and see how the world changes.
One of my favorite quote of all time is "You can do a lot for yourself by just being yourself."
You have a responsibility, stop thinking of what people think of you and Just embrace the life you have and live.
