“Everything around you that you call Life was made up of people who are no smarter than you.” – Steve Jobs.
So you can change and mold life to whatever you want it to be, basically.
For years of my life I have given in to my parents’ pressure of going down this road. Every other word was uttered with extreme fear of the unknown and traveling a safe road would be best. Even though every inch of my being wanted something else completely – I kept trying a path I hated to travel. Maybe that was why I kept changing my mind, pretending to friends and families about something that wasn’t even relevant to their life – my career goals.
It wasn’t after a messy breakup, countless attempts to do something my heart wasn’t even into, that I decided to say the hell with it.
I’m done with trying paths my heart wasn’t passionate about. Because I will never be able to live with myself. Because what I discovered through this journey called “Life” was that I would never be successful due to self sabotage if it’s not something I will fall in love with. And it wasn’t until I recognized this pattern in myself that was able to let go.
In letting go there is no more fear. Fear of failure? Forget it. Fear of backstabbing? Been there, survived it, continuing to live life trusting again. Fear of being broke? I know English, right? I can communicate? I’ll be okay. Fear of being taken advantage of? Nope. I am too damn smart for that. Many of my fears are eliminated.
And I am most happy living this way.
