NEVER do anything because you feel obligated. do something because you want to, because it’s fun. because you’ll feel accomplished after it, or because you wanna reach a goal. but never, ever feel forced into doing something you dont want to. life’s too short to do stuff you don’t enjoy, you know?
“I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people, too. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.”—Unknown (via unvis)
