This is the advice I want my kids to have, don’t give that power to anyone and don’t put that amount of pressure on yourself. You are the only person in charge of your happiness.
You can give people your gift and they will give you theirs if you are lucky but it can’t possibly feed all of your hopes and dreams, aspirations, needs and wants.
Everyone needs input, we can all realise where we want to be in life but we can’t possess every attribute we need to get there. We need help from others and they need help from us.
Everyone has something to teach us. Everyone.
