In world that makes you seem small, make choices that will make you stand tall
A lot of the times, it’s easy to feel like you’re worthless. All the responsibilities, all the things that you’re told you have to be. We’re constantly told that you have to stand out. Told you have to do things a certain way in order to be successful. But all the times I try to do the things I’m told to do.. the more I find myself feeling like I’m compromising who I am.
There isn’t a perfect equation to success, no matter what they tell you. It’s easy to feel unhappy constantly striving for something that is deemed “successful”. But the one thing I can upkeep to is finding success by your own terms, and your terms only. A mistake I’ve made (and still continue to at times) is finding worth in ways that I don’t feel genuine to. Standing tall, to me is being different. But different in the sense where you’re comfortable with yourself to carry decisions that best fits you. It’s being genuine and true. Something I always say is never compromise who you are just to please someone else. Make choices that make you stand tall, but choices that you’re comfortable in making.
