You don’t owe it to anyone to continue living a life that isn’t what you want.
Does this mean some things will change? Of course. Some will be small changes; others may be large disruptive changes.
But, that’s okay. It won’t kill you or anyone else.
I hope the people in your life that care about you, ultimately, want you to be happy.
Keep in mind when others try to hold you back or criticize you when you try to change, it’s not about you. You’re bumping up against their insecurities, and the criticism and desire to prevent you from changing are because they don’t want to deal with the fact that they aren’t strong enough to do the same.
Don’t worry about them - be strong enough to follow your heart
If you aren’t happy with your life and you crave more, seek it and find it.
You deserve the life you crave.
Life is never easy, and as the years pass, we change.
Who we are, what we want, what we enjoy, what’s important to us - it all changes with each passing year.
If the life you’ve worked so hard to create for yourself is no longer fitting with the person you have become, it’s perfectly okay to reinvent yourself.
It’s not selfish to want more from your life - it’s natural.
