If you’ll live a life that tries to please everyone, even just anyone, make sure you’ll be prepared to live a life that will never be satisfied. A life that’s always on the edge. Never relaxed. Never happy. If you’ll live a life that’s always thinking of what people thinks in response to every action that you’ll make, you’ll have to be prepared for emotional roller coaster ride for the remaining time of your life.
Let me make it personal. I’m going to make sure that I do the right thing. If i fail, I fail. But if I’m good, and others think I’m not, I don’t give a damn. I don’t live for the opinion of people. I don’t do things (and don’t do things, for that matter) to prove anything. I don’t care about whatever conclusions anybody will make in response to my actions — especially if I am sure I’m not doing anything wrong.
I don’t live for anybody else. I live for the audience of one.
