Life balance is a word that gets tossed around in abundance in today’s culture, nearly everyone knows it is the key to a successful life but very little follow it. Instead of doing what makes the you happy, we still end up doing things to please others. We play into stereotypes more than we break them apart. We would rather be labeled as the gamer, the nature freak, or the nerd, rather than becoming those who have more than one interest, and we deprive much of ourselves to stay out of the limelight.
I’m here to tell you that listening to others around you on how to live your life will drain you. The only person who knows how to make you happy is you. Do not drown out parts of your life that are fundamental to growth, be who you really want to be even if it is weird or unconventional. Do what makes you happy, and love every second of it. Never look back at the haters and those who deny you, live your life to the fullest.
