My Life, My Journey ~ Ravenwolf
I was always told who and what I should be, how I should act and the choices I should make.
I’m done living my life by the opinions of the people who don’t know me and frankly, don’t care and don’t matter.
If they had their way, they’d have me be just another copy in a world full of unoriginality.
I can’t live that way, because I’ll never be happy trying to be whatever it is they think I should be.
They didn’t walk my road, endure my struggles and nearly drown in the storms of my life..
So, when they try to whisper in my ear their opinion of me and my life, I’m going to smile and walk away.
I’d rather die in the flames of a passionate life than to slowly wither away in a life devoid of love and passion.
Sure, they’ll judge me, they’ll mock me and probably shun me, but I really don’t care anymore.
I’m not going to try to make anyone but myself happy, because that’s all I can really control.
I’m going to chase my dreams, enjoy my life and soak in the beautiful moments that surround me every day.
The rest of them will never understand that about me and they don’t have to.
I’m not asking for permission or approval to live my life the way that I choose.
Life is hard enough without trying to please people that don’t care in ways that don’t matter about things that are irrelevant.
Forget what the world thinks I should be.
This is my life, my journey and my choices.
Whether I’m different, unique or one of a kind doesn’t really matter, because I’m not being who I am to make a statement.
I’m choosing my path for the best reason of all..
To be happy..
And no one can ever take that away from me,
Now or ever.~
