When it comes to your life and how you choose to live it is your business. You have a choice to give that much energy to people and their opinions who do nothing for you or give it to yourself, and your potential.
People will always have opinions about how you choose to live your life, but if they are not helping you pay bills their opinions don't matter. We choose what we tell ourselves, what to believe and what to give our emotions to.
It's not always easy when you have outside noise coming from the bleachers telling you how you should live your life. It takes mental and emotional work to resist the temptation to count yourself out because someone does not agree with your lifestyle.
Here are 5 things you don't owe anyone an explanation for:
1. Your Habits
At the end of the day you are the one who has to live with the habits you pick up throughout life, not them. You don't have to explain yourself to anyone about the habits you choose to entertain.
It's all well and good if they have a piece of advice, you are welcome to it. It's another thing when they want to force you to stop doing what you been doing for years.
It's your life, your choices, you choose if and when you want to quit something.
2. Your Body
What you choose to do with your body is your right. People will always have something to say about the things you do like it's their business.
Whether you decide to tattoo your whole body, lose weight, have plastic surgery, piercings, etc...those are decisions you will have to live with not them, so you don't owe anyone an explanation. It's your body, not theirs.
3. Your Money
You work hard for your money, how you choose to spend it is your business. Some people act like you owe them an explanation for spoiling yourself and buying the things you like.
If they didn't help you make the money, whatever they have to say about how you choose to spend it is none of their concern. People's opinions on your hard earn money should be the least of your worries.
4. Your Love Life
Who you choose to date or fall in love with is nobody's business but yours. You don't owe anyone an explanation as to why you chose them over somebody else.
The heart wants what it wants and you are the only one who will have to deal with the decision of being with them. If they make you happy that's all that matters, everything else is just negative energy. Some people talk noise because sometimes they are just jealous of you.
When it comes to family that is private matter, but most people want to have a say on how you should deal with family issues when they arise. Family is sacred and it's nobody's business what you might be dealing with.
If you choose to let people in and share your family problems there will be opinions coming at you left and right. It is up to you to shut down all negative noise. Sometimes its best to just keep family matters private.
The less people know the better.
