“No one knows your situation better than you. Do what’s best for you. If they can’t love you through it, then they weren’t meant to be in your life.” ~ Tony Gaskins; American motivational speaker, author and life coach.
“Look inside yourself for the answers, you’re the only one who knows what’s best for you. Everybody else is only guessing.” ~ Charles De Lint; Canadian short story writer, novelist, poet, and lyricist.
Knowledge of self, daily reflection, routine meditation into yourself, is what one needs in order to embrace complete happiness and in order to be content with whatever you do in life.
This is self-love: when you only follow your inner self and take care of that inner self because you realize that you are the most important person you have to worry about, your mental elevation and emotional understanding; and so, from this process of self-love you can now expand love onto others.
But this paramount process of self-love gets interrupted and badly tainted if you allow your focus to be on others, on others’ expectations for you, on others’ opinions and wishes for you, etc. etc.
No one, not even your loved ones, can tell you exactly what is best for you if you are mature enough to see it for yourself, if you are mature enough to know where you are going and enjoy the path you walk; therefore, it is of the ego to feel victim of the opinions, wishes, expectations of other people, for you must see the reality, that you are the god of your own life, that you are the creator of your own life.
Never allow guilt, shame, fear, to consume your rationale and affect your emotional understanding of yourself, because you are here on this earth to develop yourself, not to take care of others constantly and be the punching bag for their mental and emotional nonsense.
You are the only one who knows your innermost desires and strengths, so do not let any tricks from your ego or from the ego of others to manipulate you into being less and staying less than what you are and can accomplish.
Do not give in to stress and frustration, but raise above it.
