Does It Matter?

Does it really matter? When you are enjoying your life, when you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, when you are living your life, when you are loving yourself, when you are making yourself happy, when you are trying new things, when you are not afraid to think for yourself, when you are reinventing yourself, other people’s opinions don’t matter.

But if other people’s opinions don’t matter, then why are we worrying ourselves about them? Why can’t we just live our lives without worrying about other people’s opinions? Why can’t we just keep going, keep going to places? We can, but we don’t. We can, but we won’t. Why is that? Because we want to fit in. We want other people to like us. If you have been doing it, stop it.

You can’t fit in and expect yourself to do great things. You can’t fit in and still live your normal life. You can’t fit in and still have the courage to think for yourself. Because fitting in is the same thing as just going with the flow. When you go with the flow, you are just doing what other people want you to do.You are just living the way they want you to live, to think. If you want to make a diffrence, you must learn how to question the flow. Before you go with the flow, question it. There is power in questioning. The more questions you ask, the more you will know about yourself, about your life, and about the people around you. Questions are good, not bad. If you have the courage to ask intelligent questions, why not?

If you want to get to the next level, if you want to make a difference, do not worry about other people’s opinions of you. Why? Because they don’t count. They don’t matter. Do they really matter?
