Every person is unique in many ways. You may have some things in common but no two are exactly the same, not even identical twins.
We can experience some of the same things as each other but there are way many more things that we each experienced that the other person didn't.
You can't be you if you don't do what you want to do JUST because someone tells you that if they were you, they wouldn't do it.
Someone may think they know someone based on what they know about them. But they only know a small percentage of their lifetime of experiences it took to make them who they are.
You know you best. So it is best that you decide what you should do. It doesn't matter what anyone else would do if they were you.
Remember what works for someone else may not work for you.
If you keep changing yourself to please other people, before you know it you won't even know WHO YOU TRULY ARE.
You can't be you if you don't stay true to yourself.
To be the best you that you can be takes being YOU.
