Your Life is Your Business

In life it’s common to get bogged down with the expectations and opinions of others. Family, friends, lovers…it may seem like everyone has thoughts on how you should live your life. However, other people’s thoughts, opinions and expectations for your life is not your problem. The only standards you should strive to measure up to is your own; it’s not your job to measure up to anyone else’s.

Carrying around outside expectations is like toting around a heavy weight on your shoulders. The only way to lighten the load and find internal peace, freedom and contentment is to stop caring what other people think about you. There is immense freedom when you can live your life by your own terms.

“My life is my life and what you think about how I live my life is none of my business; and how I choose to live my life is none of yours.” ~C. Adia
