What does this mean?

I feel like my life is based on how other people perceive it- and what the hell?  That isn’t who I am deep down.  I am a writer.  I need to practice my craft more.  I don’t mind if my family becomes seriously concerned because there is really no reason for their concern.  I’m being myself.  I need to finally take this step on my own.  I cannot abide by guidance any longer.  To you, that may seem foolish- but your approval is not important to me.

I am a young person.  I know where people are trying to push me but it doesn’t feel right.  Finding what is right seems to be a very arduous process.  Happiness means sacrificing.  Really not sure what that fully means yet.  I need to process everything in my mind.  There is so much about life that is not set out in a step-by-step instruction.  Looking at everything from a different vantage point all together opens up new possibilities.  New regrets.

This is my life story. Don't expect for me to entirely spill the beans on everything, but my life is certainly a sloppy recipe of writing, research, realizations and love. Basically, I'm learning as I go. I strive to positively impact my community, my sphere of influence. I believe that this happens only through living your life to the fullest!

    “Happiness means sacrifice”

    I sometimes think of this like shedding pounds…it feels good holding onto them, gaining them–surrounding yourself with approval of your lifestyle & life choices.

    But once you shed the pounds…the need for approval from friends and family, there’s a freedom you haven’t experienced before.

    And more often than not, it doesn’t become a separation, just an independence. And I don’t know many families & friends who don’t, someday, grow to respect that.

    I commend you for stepping out on your own and feeling your way through life with your own hands. It’s the best thing I ever did for myself.
