Don’t be flexible for other people. By flexible, I mean that somebody’s opinion or suggestion must not control the way you live your life. No, don’t do that and it’s not necessary at all. You can take others opinions as an aid while you travel in your journey but don’t make it your staple diet, trust me. It won’t do any good.
You have an idea of how you want to live your life and you have a big dream inside you, a dream that you must have been sprouting everyday from the moment you started dreaming of it in the first place. That dream must happen. It is the reason of your existence in life, isn’t it ? We all live for a dream that we believe is going to happen one fine day.
So in short don’t allow others to control your life. Not your parents, relatives, friends or your girlfriend/wife. Absolutely NOBODY. It’s just a big road that you are willing to travel and if you decided to explore it, then you must do it. NO BACKING DOWN.
