10 things you shouldn’t have to justify to anyone else

1.Put yourself first. – In a television interview, Michelle Obama has been asked if she thought it was selfish if she has openly admitted to make herself her first priority, to which she replied, “No, not at all. It’s all practical…. there are times when we just slip pretty low on our own priority list as we become so busy caring for others. And one should invest in themselves as much as they do in others.” There are very few people on this planet who would stay totally true to you, and remember that you should be one of them. Do give highest priority to your needs .

2.Express your emotions. – No need to apologize for being emotional. There’s no real reason to be ashamed to feel something if that means real to you. It’s just a sign that you have a heart which is big and you are afraid if others get to know. Being a human, you cannot be emotionless. The people who judge you and not being modest are the ones who really need to apologize.

3.Being weird. – “Where’s your will to be weird?” your resolution should be to be real and weird. It’s not at all weird to be weird. Everybody is weird in their own way. You must accept whatever you are like and never be embarrassed of yourself. If you have something that makes you different from others then you are lucky, don’t you dare hide it.

4.Being YOU. – We will never be more alive than being brave, and we can never be brave if we don’t take off our masks and real selves. It’s more about finding the real courage. Don’t even dare to do this to yourself. Don’t try to be “perfect” for appreciation from others, and just be who you are.

5.Don’t take things personally. – When you don’t care about the opinions of others, you will never be the victim of suffering. Few people might tell you that it’s best to stand up for yourself and fight back, but remember best offense is always a good defense. Defend yourself f by not listening to they say. If you take things personally, you will be offended every time. What others do to you is because of them, not because of you. Period.

6. Forgive. – Grudges are for those who think that they are owe something. Forgiveness, on the other hand, is for those who are confident enough to stand on and move forward. If you want to move forward, you must realize why did you feel that way it hurt you, and why you should not feel the way you did. Accept the past completely, let it be, and lift up your spirit with good intentions.

7.You’ll spend your time with whom – In the end, the best investment would be spending your limited time with people you love. Although you may regret someday lying on your deathbed that you didn’t work that hard and check little things off your to-do list, work being your biggest concern is doubtful though. What’s more likely is that you will wish you could have had one more romantic night with the person you love or heartfelt talk with your family, and one last good laugh with your world’s best friend. Never be busy for your loved one as life is too short.

8.Don’t measure up to everyone else’s progress. – Comparing your life’s progress with that of others is stupidity. We all have our own time to travel our own journey. In fact, two of the most amazing couples I know didn’t meet each other until they were in their late 30’s. One of these couples had their first child in their early 40’s. The lesson learnt here is : Amazing things don’t happen if the society tells you they’re supposed to happen – they happen when they’re meant to be. So you don’t have to give reasons for why you aren’t married or have children or making a certain amount of money, etc. life is not meant to be scripted the exact same way.

9.Don’t be scared to fail again. – Failure is just another opportunity to start again, smarter than you were before. Forget what others said to you. Fail often, fail as many times as you can, pull yourself up, learn from it, move forward, and then repeat it. Just because things didn’t work out today, doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do tomorrow. Relax and get ready.

10.Foolish things you once did. – I don’t entirely abide with some of the things I did in my life. But I am what I am. And it would not be as I am right now if I didn’t learn along the long way. The same is true for you too. All wise old people were once foolish and young; that’s what made them wise. Don’t be embarrassed of who you were to get to where you are now.
