I found this picture on Facebook. Not really sure why it spoke to me so much, but something about the girls’ specificity in her journey and what she is bringing with her reminds me of this:
There is no one-size-fits-all for happiness. No one knows what’s best for you, no one else is in your brain, no one else has walked where you have walked – the journey that makes you happiest will be a set of choices and decisions based on circumstances and life that no one else has experienced, so why would you listen to anyone else regarding your own happiness?
For someone like myself who has, in the past and occasionally in the present, been in the habit of searching for affirmation from others, this is profound and freeing.
Do what you want to, my friends! No one is watching you!
