A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion. – Grantland Rice
Every person has a different opinion and philosophy of life. And that’s good because we can’t all do the same things all the time.
But what we all need to do is to take responsibility for your own life and your own happiness. Don’t let anyone control your life.
When you’re not happy with your job, but you’re already 30 or 40, then change your career anyway. Even though, other people will not understand your decisions, those are your decisions and it’s your life.
If they already found their dream job early, then they should be grateful and live happily ever after. Every person is different, and so is their life and happiness.
Recently I heard my neighbors talking about some people at their age (29) aren’t working yet, changed their studies a few times and traveled for a while, and they judged them on that. But it’s their life and their happiness. They shouldn’t judge them on that because they are not their positions.
Just like my neighbor is having a steady job but now starts studying on the side, and they judge him on that. Because they didn’t get it why he’s doing it, maybe he likes to learn more, maybe he wants to have a better job. You can’t read somebody’s thoughts, so you shouldn’t judge him.
What are those neighbors gossiping about my life? I already have a bachelor’s degree and I had a steady job, but I wasn’t happy, so I started studying something different from the beginning again. Almost nobody understands me, because I already had a well-paying job. It’s just wasn’t the thing I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
And now I’m happier than ever before with my studies. Everything is fun, exciting and interesting.
Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality. – Les Brown
Don’t let people control your life. When you’re not happy with your life, then change it.
It’s never too late to change and it doesn’t how much time you have already invested in it. If you’re not happy and you don’t like it, then stop wasting time on it.
It’s your life and you can always change your whole life if you’re not happy. It’s your decision.
Let them talk. Every person has a different opinion. Accept another people’s opinion but don’t let it control yours.
If people are going to judge me without fully understanding the content of my character, then their opinion just isn’t worth it. – Jazz Jennings
