Somewhere along the line of development we discover what we really are and then make our real decision for which we are responsible. Make that decision primarily for yourself because you can never really live anyone else’s lie, not even your child’s. The influence you exert is through your own life and what you become yourself.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
Live your own life. Stop living by some else’s expectations, perception and reality.
