Burn The Bridges, Light The Path


I'm not one for pity parties.

Some may call me mean, some may call me cruel, and I even get the "you're an asshole" comments from time to time. All of that pales in comparison when it comes to my personal happiness and those of the people I truly care about. A lot of people assume that you owe them something in this world, and that's all cool, for their lives. I notice a lot of people do a lot of complaining about things that don't concern them in the slightest sense. I kind of get agitated when they complain about someone's personal life and the things they do, like I don't really get why they would care about what someone else is doing with their life. But then I sat back and I started to think on why I was getting agitated by those people and I came to the conclusion that I was being JUST like them in that sense of caring what other people did with their life. When I realized I did that, I cut all of the nonsense out and I focused on what I need to do, should be doing and want to do with my life.

When that happened, the tides turned quickly.

People, for some reason or another, seem to lash out when you finally don't care anymore about what they do with their lives. I use to care when they did that, I use to go back and give them second chances and watch them ruin it worse than the first time when they messed up. That was the old me, the new me is a more focused and determined person in life. I have all of these new goals and aspirations that I want to get done in a timely manner, in short, I'm motivated as hell to be a better person. With that comes the realization that not everyone is going to see what you want to do, and that not everyone was meant to see that. Now I don't undermine people's importance in my life, not for one second, because I cherish the lessons that they provide for me.

But it's 2015 and I've learned all that I could learn from those people.

To say that you spend your life learning is a valid statement, but what I will not do is continue to tolerate those who don't share my views and those who don't want to make any kind of advancements in life as I do. That's the nature of the beast with me now, I've come to the conclusion that I want to do things that people won't understand, such as travel, more physically challenging things, just live life a little more than what I'm doing now. It amazes me how many people just want to stay the same and how they're not willing improve on just the overall value of their life and how they operate things. But like I said, that's their life and how they want it to be, and that's quite alright.

My big piece of advice here is to just live life the way you want to live it regardless of what anyone else has to say about it. If you want to be adventurous, be adventurous, if you don't, then don't. It's your life and your goals, don't let anyone else try to convince you otherwise, especially if they don't understand your reasoning or logic behind it. Hell I can even go as far as saying at least respecting the decision you made to do something with your life. But the more you worry about someone else's opinion, the more you lose the happiness you want to achieve with life, just do whatever it is that makes you happy, as long as it's not harmful to others or yourself. Don't be afraid to step away from those people, situations, anything that makes it hard for you to be you, and step towards your goals and dreams.

Just live your life to the fullest & be happy while doing it.

What do you think about people trying to control and manipulate you into doing stuff with your life that you don't agree with or don't say anything about? Leave a comment below.

Until next time guys.
