Nobody is the boss of your life. You don’t have to hold yourself accountable to anyone but yourself. The reality is that nobody is living your life for you. For this reason, you need to live your life the way you feel fit. Of course, without hurting anyone nor yourself. So then, why pay so much attention to what others may think of you? I believe worrying too much about what others may think of us can paralyze us from being who we truly are. This causes complexes and the need of other people’s approval of ourselves and this is not healthy for our well-being.
Part of well-being is having a healthy self-esteem where even though you will always be asking for other people’s opinion which is normal, you first approve of yourself despite others not approving of you. It is being secure of oneself, not in an arrogant way, but having that sense of confidence in yourself that you are the way you are and you are fine just the way you are. That confidence that you were designed with purpose and you are proud of who you are.
Your life is for you to live it however you want because nobody has a right to tell you how to live it. Inside of you, you have a GPS system that guides you and tells you which direction to head with your life. It is a matter of listening to your interior.
Your life is for you to live it however you want and when you live it the way you want without hurting others nor yourself, this will fill you up with happiness and well-being. Your well-being also depends on your happiness and a healthy self-esteem.
