Something I absolutely believe in:
"Life is what you make of it,
Not what other people make of you."
- Jennifer Kushell
There's really no point in giving 'other people' more power over us than they should have, right?
I know it's often easier to hand over the reins to anyone else but ourselves. It gives us lesser responsibility of the outcome of our lives. But, it also disempowers us.
So, where's the good and the fun in that? 😉
