What They Say

Many people have a mindset of the things you should be doing at this time in your life. They have this perfect idea of when you should have a girlfriend/boyfriend, when you should get married and when you should have kids. They ask what college you're going to or if you've already gone. They make comments about your current job like it’s not good enough. College seems to be the answer for everything these days, like it's the only way to get anywhere in life. I'm not speaking negatively about college. I just believe that it's for some people, not everyone.

Because of their comments and judgments we can find ourselves questioning where we are at in life and if we've accomplished anything worthwhile. These thoughts in our head can lead us to depression and negativity and make us feel constantly pressured. It’s so important that we don’t let what they say get to us because it can steer us off track into a terrible dark hole.

Maybe you don't have the job you'd like to have but you're working towards it and that’s great! Maybe you feel stuck, like you're too old to do this or that. That’s the world telling you those lies! You're never too old to make changes in your life and go after a dream! Not everyone gets their first car or moves out after they graduate, not everyone marries their best friend in their twenties and not everyone goes to school to become a nurse. Those are all great accomplishments but they’re not everyone’s. We all have different stories to be told.

God made us all so unique and if we did things the way the world expects us to in a certain order and at a certain time how boring would that be? The world, although as dark as it has become, would have a lot less color in it. So please, flush those negative thoughts and feelings out as often as you need to because the world needs your color, your beautiful life. :)
