Monday Motivation: "The Box"

Happy Monday everyone! You ever just come across a quote that really hits deep? That's how I feel about this one that I found from Pinterest the other day. I've noticed these past two years that I've been really changing and improving myself for the better but there's still some habits that I can't seem to easily break. One of them is trying to make others happy while putting my own happiness second. Apparently, I feel the need to change myself and fit into other people's ideas of what I should be in order to please them. I'm sure at one point in time we have all done this, am I right?

Luckily, I'm slowly learning how to not be afraid of disappointment and most importantly failure. I can change myself a million times in order to meet other people's expectations but at the end of the day, I still have the same unhappy heart that I had before. What's the point of making ourselves into everything that other people want us to be when we should be the ones deciding?!

I've noticed I'm not the only one who does this, we change ourselves for our parents, our friends, and many others in order to not disappoint. Trust me, the praise that we receive from fitting into their "box" doesn't last very long. It's so much better to decide for yourself who you want to be. Yes, it might be painful and people will criticize you, but it's your life and your decisions. 

Until next time lovelies,
