Growing up

There comes a time in life when you no longer want more drama in your life than a TV soap opera. You no longer care what everyone else thinks, because at the end of the day, it only matters what you think!

I have come to this point in my own life. It’s been a long bloody journey to get here, but i made it. I wear what i want, i listen to my gut feelings, i trust my instincts. I let go of the people that had begun to have a negative impact on my life.

One of the things i find hard is, people remembering me for who i used to be. When i was doing silly things and making all the wrong choices in life. How do you separate yourself from that? how do you make a “new” you if you’re still remembered as the “old” you?

Sometimes making the hardest and most painful decisions, are the best ones in the long run. I have had to make many of those decisions and it has truly been heartbreaking, but also at times eye opening.

Never be afraid to put one foot in front of the other, follow new paths, take risks, and most importantly don’t be afraid to like yourself. Nobody can look after you the way you can.
