It took me 53 yrs to learn how to be myself. It’s hard! We try to please others, we try to not upset the apple cart, we try to “fit in” ( I shudder just typing that out). Honestly, I think as long as you aren’t hurting yourself or others, just do what makes your heart happy and the world a better place!

I remember when my son went off to university at 19, after his first year he called and said “mom I hate this shit I don’t wanna be here anymore”. Great!! Stop going! If it makes you anything other than happy then don’t do it. That’s my advice to anyone and the motto I try to live by!

This was a great piece Joey!!
