Although in our early years we may not start out in control of our decisions or our life, we might be too young to do the things we want to do, or too old to do the things we used to do, is it a cultural or family thing or does society seems to dictate its terms?
It should be up to us to decide how we choose to live our life. As the adult, not everyone is going to like or agree with our choices on some of our decisions, but they are our decisions for us to make; in the same way our parents made their own decisions and perhaps their parents before them.
As long as we’re not breaking the law or harming anyone, we should be allowed to make our own decisions. What family fail to realise is that what we choose to do is our life. We must feel comfortable with our decisions, it’s not up to family to agree.
It’s us who must live with our decisions; pleasing others so we fit in doesn’t help, because we will simply lose ourselves in trying. And whether others think they have a say in our life, our decisions are for us to make, not for others to agree before we make our decisions.
We must continue to stand our ground regardless of the cost. Although it’s not easily achievable and it may not always work, it’s not something we should ignore because we think it’s easier. These things never turn out to be easier.
