There are some people who choose to hibernate themselves instead of enjoying their lives and making their own decisions. They rather get occupied with others’ opinions however there is no greater freedom than muting the noise (and critics) of the outside world and go with the flow. Focus on yourself and do what is good for YOU! Do what really makes you happy as why your happiness value less than the good opinion of the old lady from next door? Why is it so important that your colleague likes your new outfit? Ask yourself the question: does this make me happy? Do I feel better after doing this? Then don’t hesitate as you are supposed to live your own life and not somebody else’s. It is not selfish to focus on yourself and giving the respect to your own self what you deserve. You free yourself from the burden and stress of pleasing others and you can live your own life happily. Why wasting energy on a stranger’s opinion about your new mini skirt if you enjoy wearing it? You have to answer to your own purpose, not to others’!
