Live for YourSelf or Live For Others
Don’t you think that we were born to live and not to exist? It happens way too often that we go through life like we are on autopilot. We go through these periods of time when day after day passes by the same way.
We are way too comfortable and we realize that we have gone through another year without having done anything. Actually, we come to a realization that we have not really lived.
One or two years – nothing to worry about, but when you reach certain age and you look back on life with regrets, not so good. That’s fine, until you see your friend’s kids go off to college, you might feel that you have missed something.
If you want to truly live your life, experience, and enjoy it to the full extent, instead of barely getting by or just existing, then you need to find a way to let go of all the beliefs and convictions you have.
If you live your life worrying if you are living up to expectations, if you are letting down your parents, if you are doing the right thing, if you have become somebody that other people approve of, then you are not living. You are trying to be somebody that other people think you should be. That means that you live your life for others, you live to make them happy.
What makes you happy? What makes your heart skip a beat? Do you live for yourself or you live for others?
