Hey Angela, I hear you. It’s so great to see that you’re comfortable with living your own way, rather than according to expectations from family or society. That takes courage.
But it’s worth it. In the end, you’re the one who has to live with yourself, and wake up every day dragging yourself out of bed — or jumping out of bed with excitement and joy :)
Cheers for sharing, I really enjoyed hearing about your experiences and insights :)
