I believe that you are your own person, you make your own decisions and that you have a purpose in life. This being said I also believe your surroundings have a lot to do with how you feel, what you believe and what you’re able to achieve. Life is confusing at the best of times, we’re all just trying to find our way in the best way that we can but we can do some things to make life more fun, more enjoyable and more for filling. Every person you choose to spend time with influences your life whether you think so or not. Their thoughts and feelings effect you. The way they interact with you will give you worth… or not. I’m not saying you should invest all of your self worth in another person but it is a great feeling being appreciated by another person. It is so important to find happiness in yourself and to learn to love yourself. People say you can’t love someone else until you love yourself and I’m not really sure how much I agree with this. Personally I think that the right person will help you realise that you can love yourself while loving someone else. In saying that you definitely need to have time to yourself to figure yourself out. I am not saying you have to plan your life out or know where you’re going or what you’re doing but it’s about having your own opinions and being your own person. Just because you’re in a relationship it doesn’t mean you have to become that person. It doesn’t mean you have to do what ever they say, or what ever they want to do. You only ever have to do what you want to do and what you are comfortable with.
The best thing you can do in life is surround yourself by positivity surround yourself with people who lift you up, who make you feel good about yourself. Surround yourself with people who push you to be a better person, who drive your determination. Surround yourself with love. In a world full of hate love is the most beautiful thing you will experience. Cherish the simple moments and don’t ever look back. Everything happens for a reason. People come and go. Some will go and come back. Trust the universe and it’s plan for you. What is mean’t to be will be, everything else is gone so you can focus on something better. I think it’s also important to surround yourself with a variety of people. You don’t have to just hang out with people your own age, who do the same hobbies as you. Widen your horizons and hang out with people form all walks of life. Hang out with people older than you and learn from their experiences. Hang out with people younger than you and understand they will experience all the things you have been through. The love, the heartbreak the difficult decisions the ever lasting questions. Every human with a heart, mind and soul will experience those things.
No one gets out of here alive. We’re not here a long time so make it a good time choose your surroundings and make them good.
