“Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.”— Steve Maraboli
If we spend our time worrying about what other people think, we will never do what interests us. Yes we have relationships with others, but we also have a relationship with ourselves. We don’t have to have someone’s approval when we have ourselves to approve. We don’t need our approval of what we’re doing validated by someone else’s approval. We must allow ourselves to do what interests us without ever having to second-guess ourselves. If we do what interests us and, we enjoy doing it, then our approval to ourselves is validated and we would do more of what we like. This is how we get stronger and freer to be ourselves as individuals. We only have one life to live so let us take pleasure in the things that interest us.
