Much Needed Wisdom

Sometimes I get really down in the dumps about my life choices. What I should do, shouldn't do, mistakes I think I made, etc. Today I found an old Dear Sugar post and it just fit perfectly with how I feel lately. If you've never read Dear Sugar, it's kind of like Dear Abby, but a little more emotional (I think at least). Here's my favorite quote from the article, but I urge you to read the whole piece here

"You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.

You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.

But that’s all."
