“The choices you make in your life will make your life.”
~ Michael Josephson
You are your choices. Your wishes and desires depend on your choices; your choices alone.
Don’t change a decision you have in what’s concerned with YOUR OWN HEALTH / LIFE thinking that you may upset someone or hurt someone’s feelings. You are the only person in control of your life and your health — other people are in control of theirs. You are not responsible for how people will react to your choices; they are!
Let’s say you want to become a healthier version of yourself but you have too much negativity around you: people bringing you down, bringing unhealthy foods to your home, making fun about how you have decided to live (just because you have changed!), smoking, drinking, using drugs.
What some people don’t understand is that we DO change! Every single day we change, with every experience we go through and every conversation we have even with people we don’t know. As we GROW and learn that being healthy is a choice, we start taking steps towards that path to better ourselves.
It’s sad that some people fall back because they are afraid of others would say; or they don’t want to deal with the jokes; or they want to keep the same friends, for example. But then it’s time to think: Are those influences in your life worth it? Are they worth your health, YOUR life? If they aren’t then choose to replace them with good ones!
Always keep in mind that the ones who rebel against you are the ones who wish they had the courage to make the same choices as you. They are just stuck in their own fears.
Focus on you and on your goals. Make YOUR choices! We should NEVER compromise our happiness! That is not being selfish, it’s being strong; it’s knowing who you truly are and following your dreams.
Don’t let anyone bring you down. Live your life the way YOU have planed it. And if you don’t have a plan yet, what about starting one today?
Wishing you happiness today and always,
