Many of us wear masks. Most of us live by what society,family and friends expect us to live. Somehow we have forgotten that we are not supposed to live like that. We have became slave of others expectations for us because we are afraid that if we don't do what they expect people will not love us. But, is this the way you want to live?

I can say im not living the way i want to. I want to move out of the house and live alone. I cant do that since im an only child and my parents are too old to live by themselves. And im not being true to myself either. Im still live unto what other people expect of me.

that was a very honest response. Be determine that you will live the way you want. Learn to let go of others expectations and your expectations from them.Let go and move on.You will be happier.

No. I want to be a traveller and as well as a great photographer. I receive income just enough to survive and a little extra for little things i want to buy. But i can't afford to travel places. I don't have a luxury life.

I do live my live the way I want. Many people think I am crazy. Many people predicted my failure, but it never stop me from doing what I wanted to do. I created my safty zone and I don't let anyone to cross it. I do liten to peoples advice, but not expectations. If someone want to love me for who I am, fine, but I am not changing to they needs and ambitions.
