“Don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.”
– Grace Hansen
I think this is what I should have been living by for my entire life. I have always lived my life safely. I have lived by the rules everyone has set out for me. I never got detention at school, never got grounded, and was always the ‘good, quiet girl’. Well I’m sick of it.
As of November, I will be moving to live in Australia for at least a year. I will be working out there, meeting people out there and REALLY living out there. And I can’t wait. It does mean I have had to sacrifice some parts of my life. Last night I ended my relationship with my boyfriend. I hate that I hurt him and probably broke his heart, but for once, I need to be selfish. If I don’t do this, I know I won’t survive another year. Then he would be hurting more. Sometimes it is just safer to be selfish. In my case, anyway.
I am eventually learning to live for myself.
