Growing up and learning your own mind.

Growing up you are essentially told what to think, what to believe and what to do until you develop mental maturity. Some people know their own mind very early on, whilst people in their late twenties are still trying to “find themselves” in foreign countries and different guys beds.
However, there are some people who develop themselves early (or think that they have) so much so that they think they have the right or maybe even the responsibility to guide your actions. Don’t get me wrong, 90% of the time I’m sure it’s for your benefit but *exhales* if it is not your life then you have no right in being angry at that person for not following your beloved guidance. You are your own person, as am I and every other person on this planet. No one person has control over anyone so if you don’t want to listen to your parents telling you what career they want you to have, or your friend telling you to stop speaking to that guy because he’s bad news…then don’t. I cannot stress this enough! 
Maybe that guy is beyond bad news, and maybe wanting to be the first stripper on the moon is a tad unrealistic but if it gives you something to focus on and makes you happy then just do it. I’m sure your parents have had unrealistic dreams at some point in their life, just as sure as I am that your friend is still speaking to that guy she said she was “so done with” 2 months ago.

If you get anything out of this post, I hope it’s that everyone belongs to themselves and you don’t owe anyone anything. Unless it’s money…then you should probably pay them back. There are going to be people who say they will support you through everything, as long as ‘everything’ is what they agree with. 

At the end of the day, you’re on your own kiddo. If you want to cut your hair really short, do it. If you want to cut your losses with toxic friendships and move onto a new stage in your life, go for it. Sometimes it just takes following your own gut instinct, because do you really want to have to rely on other people to make decisions for you? No thanks.

I’m not half as bad as what you’ve been told,
Lauren
