Stop mimicking the world. Stop trying to fit in.
You don't owe anyone but yourself an explanation. Constantly we find ourselves depressed, anxious, unhappy, why? Because we give people outside ourselves the right to dictate our existence.
Remember, the only person that goes with you to your dreams is you, the one who knows your feelings best is you, the one that knows what makes you happy best is you.
Guidance is importance, advice is crucial, friends are helpful, family makes life bearable but at the end of the day the person you should learn to answer to is yourself.
What are you waiting for? Go out there and take the world by storm.
