Rant of the day:
If there’s one thing my family is good at, it’s living conditionally. And it’s usually always the same condition: Jennica needs to do something other than what she’s doing so that I can be happy with her. And if she does I’m not going to love her. If I don’t do what they want they’re just not happy. Not happy people at all. When she expresses this to them of course, they don’t have time to hear it. But they do have time to tell her what she needs to do differently in order to please them. Isn’t that something?
I’ve always been the type of person to make myself happy no matter what. And I believe that I don’t need to be different in order to make people around me feel better. I believe they need to step up to the plate and make themselves feel better. Which of course, most people aren’t conscious of at all. They think their happiness lies within other people and what they are or are not doing. News flash: That’s wrong.
Today is a great reminder of why I moved 600 miles away and why I don’t talk to my family. I can never win with them. And honestly, I don’t plan on trying. I plan on traveling the world and living my best life while I’m still young. I plan on meeting new people and making new friends every place I go. And I plan on loving the people around me unconditionally while I live a life without condition. If there’s one thing I’m grateful for, it’s my ability to know the difference between a chaotic life and a peaceful one.
The lesson of the day: Since there’s no polite way to tell someone they’ve dedicated their lives to an illusion. Be the person you want to me no matter what. Don’t let someone else allow you to believe that their happiness depends on you. It doesn’t. It never will. So you do you. Rant over.
