Life is hard enough...without trying to live it on other people's terms. All my life there have been people who thought they had the right to tell me how I should live my life. "You should do this." "You shouldn't do that." "You should think this, but not that."
No one has the right to make you live their way...unless you're a child who is still learning right from wrong and left from right.
Once you've grown up, then you should be able to make decisions on how you want to live your life. After all, you will have to live with the consequences.
I know that sometimes I've been a disappointment to my parents. I never followed their beat or their path or their dream. I was always content to create my own.
Since my philosphy includes living a life with no regrets, I've always tried to follow my heart and my head. I haven't broken any rules, but I have bent quite a few.
