Stop trying to be what others want you to be. Be who makes you happy and do what makes you happy. If people fault you for that then they aren’t worthy of you anyway.
The quote above is something that my grandmother told me right before she got really sick. It is a piece of advice that I will never forget and I try to live by. There are times when I get off track with it but when I get back to following it I notice how different my attitude is and how much happier I am.
