OK, no pressure. The only person you owe yourself to is you. I know that's a heavy statement. But, think about it. Your mind. Your body. Your choices. Your actions. Your words. Your self. Only you. Who are you responsible for? You. Y. O. U. Three letters. One word. This isn't charades here -- you. Simple.
You will go about your entire life and, at the end of the day, what's left whenever you're recapping in your bed at night is whatever you make of it. Yeah, that's f***ing cheesy. But, it's true. You're left with you and how you see yourself. How you see your life and your choices. How you perceive your feelings and your emotions. You're the only one who can determine whether your head is at peace and what makes your heart feel at home.
I don't want to go all avatar-spiritual on you, but there's a really big amount of accountability that lies within you. You don't owe yourself to anyone else. You can extend yourself to others, yes, but the only person you owe yourself to is you.
So, think about what you want. Think about what you need. Seek out the things that give you balance and push you forward. Decide what significance you want to place on your actions and your words. Dedicate yourself to being amazing, because why be adequate when you can be fantastic? Shine from within. Do no harm, but take no crap. Surround yourself with people who dream and support and do things, but do it for yourself. Take what is yours and give no apologies for fighting for what you believe in.
Be true to you because you're the one experiencing everything that life has to offer. Do it because you're your biggest critic and your biggest supporter. I'm not saying don't think about others and to be selfish all of the time. All I'm saying is that when you are on your death bed and you are thinking about all the things you've done in your life -- you want to be sure that you came through on everything you owed yourself.
As you go through life, strive to be fulfilled. Push for greatness and spontaneity. Pull the best out of yourself because everyone deserves to be proud of what they've done, the person they are and the person they are becoming. Don't let yourself fall short and never let other people take away what makes you special. You owe it to yourself to be brilliant in whatever light you see it.
