You Were Not Meant To Perform, Please or Prove. You Were Just Meant to Be.

No matter who you are and no matter what you do, people are going to judge you.

People are going to judge you if you choose to go to university.

People are going to judge you if you don’t choose to go to university.

People are going to judge you if you become a doctor.

People are going to judge you if you become a waiter.

People are going to judge you if you do something.

And people are going to judge you if you don’t do anything.

No matter what you do, people will just judge and criticize you.

They won’t approve.

They won’t believe.

They won’t support.

So why don’t we just stop focusing on people’s opinions and judgements and instead start doing what we really love to do.

They’ll criticize anyway so might aswell stay true to who you really are and what you really want to do.

It’s better to be yourself and follow your dreams than doing everything that other people tell you to do knowing all too well that they’ll always criticize you no matter what.

You were not meant to perform or please or prove anything to anybody.

You were meant to be yourself.

And you were meant to do what you were meant to do.

It might be hard to figure out what you were meant to do exactly but only you can figure that out.

Other people also have to figure out who they are meant to be and what they are meant to do so how on earth would they know anything about who you were meant to be and what you were meant to do?

They have no clue.

So don’t give them the power to shape you into who they think you should be.

Because who they think you should be, isn’t who you were meant to be.

You’ll find out exactly who you should be and what you should do as long as you stay true to yourself.

The truth of the matter is that everyone is on an unknown and evolving path.

We don’t know where it will lead us but you won’t know who you were meant to be unless you are willing to take that unknown and changing path.

You might be scared or unsure but the one thing that is for sure is that if you stay true to who you are, you are definitely going to end up where you were meant to be.
