“You are not here to sacrifice your joy or your life. You are here to live, to be happy, and to love.-”
– The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
I have come to realize and accept this simple and wonderful truth. We are not here to give up who we are for others and for the comfort of others. We are here to be ourselves and live our lives. It is not necessary for me or you to be or do anything other than what we want for ourselves. Our lives are our own. All there is for us to do is enjoy our lives, do what we can for ourselves, and do what we can for others.
