Make Decisions for Yourself, Not Other People

I’ve always been a free-thinker, not easily influenced by the opinions of others, but always open to hear the wisdom of those around me. I never noticed that it was rare until I started analyzing the affects of social media on my generation. Every decision that we make should not include the question, “What will (fill in the blank) think?” When you make decisions for other people, you sacrifice the happiness you could have had for yourself. You sacrifice potential opportunities. You even sacrifice yourself.

Today, I challenge you to stop making decisions for the validation of other people. When you go to bed tonight and your head hits your pillow, you have to be okay with every decision you made that day…not me…not your family…not your friends. Make decisions for yourself, not the validation of other people.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered
