Your life is yours to live. Always remember that. Do not let anyone else tell you that you cannot do or be this or that. Sure, they can advise and suggest/recommend to you but no one should be given the right to dictate how you live your truth. However, be mindful not to let arrogance get in the way, it is when you dismiss all of the suggestions and advice thinking that you know better. The reality is that sometimes you just do not know. So listen hard but make your own decisions. After all is said and done, you will be living with the decision that you have made. Do not let society or external factors hinder you from stepping into your truth. Life is too short to worry yourself about that.
