People… People… People…!
Honestly, in the 21st century, you don’t get to live your life, people live your life for you, society decides the way you should walk, talk, dress, behave, rather the society’s opinions decide how your future is going to be. When you decide to do something out of the box, you tend to think about what people would think about you, would they judge you, before you actually think about yourself.
Who are these people? Why do they and their opinions have to decide what you are going to be?
Life has 2 parts, Success and Failure. And these people, the society would not appreciate you in any of the 2 parts of your life.
When you succeed, at the first they sure will congratulate you but later they’ll say that doing a job like this is no big deal. Anyone could have done, you’ve done nothing great. They haven’t seen what pains you have gone through, they haven’t seen the efforts you have made because they never tried to do something extraordinary. It’s always easy for them to say “It’s no big deal” because people don’t even care to try something huge.
On the other hand, when you face failure, people would underestimate you saying it was too big for you to do it. They will blame you for trying your best to do something different than others. One mistake you make in life and people will keep on judging you for the rest of their life.
So, if people are going to express their opinions in both, your success and your failure, then why do you have to even care about the society? If your instincts tell you to go for it then just do it. Don’t think who thinks what, screw the people and follow your dreams because tomorrow it’s you who is going to have either a better or a worse life, not people. You have to celebrate at the best and survive during the worst, not people. You are going to be successful or experience a failure, not people. So don’t let people’s opinions decide what your future is because they are always there to keep opinions and judge, even if you succeed or even if you fail.
