A close friend of mine came to me recently.
She said she felt tired. Really tired.
Her family was starting to drive her crazy.
She wanted to live her own life. But her family always had some other plans for her.
She has her own personality. But her family always wanted her to become someone else.
And her choice was always to give in.
She doesn't want to hurt her family. So she chooses to compromise.
And that's why she never felt happy.
I, on the other hand, am living a completely different life.
I love my family. But I make my own dicisions.
I am an independent individual. I have my boundaries that not even my family have the right to trespass.
Yeah, some relatives don't like me because of this. And that's good.
I can't please everyone and I don't plan to.
I tried to persuade that friend of mine to live like me.
But she's been hesitating.
I don't know whether she will change or not eventually. I really hope she does. Because ever since I chose to live like this, my life has been getting better and better.
It's really a good choice.
