There will always be people who will tell you to go with the flow, chill, relax, and accept every situation lightly. Yes, this is certainly a good way to live your life, free of worry and anxiety, but still – there are some things that should never be mediocre. There are some things that you must nourish and fight for to live a happy and fulfilled life.
Those people who tell you how you should live your life and not expect much from it are not your people. No one can tell you what you should do and judge you by their own standards. The only thing you should listen to is your heart and go towards whatever makes you happy.
When you live your life worrying about what other people think of you and whether you are ‘too much’ – you will live a very sad and stressful life.
If your passionate nature is scaring people away and makes them walk away from you – let them. You don’t need anyone who doesn’t match your energy in your life. The most important thing is being honest about who you are and how you expect to be treated when it comes to your connections.
Your life should be compounded of things you love and things that make you happy. Don’t fear to let everyone know this. You are not meant for shallow connections and mediocre people. But, if you act as if you could care less, then guess what? Life will give you people and things that you don’t care about. That’s how it works.
Of course, there are many things over which you don’t have control, and you should not bother with them. Most of these things include other people’s opinions and their actions. You can neither change them nor convince them otherwise.
The only person over whom you have control is yourself. You and only you have the total control over your life and how you will decide to live your life.
Therefore, don’t settle for shitty coffee. Don’t settle for shitty friends who only call you when they need something from you. And never ever settle for shitty relationships with shitty people. You know, ones who string you along, are toxic to you, and those who don’t inspire you to grow.
Life’s too short for that. Cheers!
