This quote below literally stunned me temporarily upon hearing it…
“I did all that the world expected of me…at the expense of my dreams.”
I sat there, silent. Blown away at the harsh reality behind this statement. I thought, “God please don’t let me ever have to say that”.
This person did EVERYTHING that was “expected” of him. Perhaps got married, had a few kids, and went to school. But for what?
We know that everything we do has a consequence. In this case, this person sacrificed their dreams to do what was expected. Why? Is it fear? Or is it the way life is? Regardless, I know personally I don’t want to be the person who fit into this category. Do you?
I don’t know who spoke this anonymous quote but whoever did, thank you. I will never be the same.
You tell me, I want to hear your thoughts. Why did this person say this?
As always God bless,
