Living in a city like Paris, where everyone around you seems younger, prettier, richer, more successful in general, it's easy to get caught up in the comparison game. I personally do my best not to, this is why it gets me furious when people come to me and simply say : "why don't you do this ?" "why don't you do that ?" "why do you keep doing this ?" "See, I do that and that"
I don't care.
As Drake say "I know how I wanna live my life, I don't need no advice". I'm not saying that I'm smarter than anyone, but I know me and I know what's best for me. It took me way too many years to start living unapologetically, to do what I want the way I want, I am not ready to let anyone make me compare my life or transfer their insecurities on me.
At the start of 2017 I swore to myself I'd make this year the best. And so far it has been. I had great opportunities, fun, experiences, surrounded by real friends,good people and I am keeping my head in the game. It takes time and work to make your life the best possible. What I learned (too late) is that most people, even the ones you love will bring you down. Sometimes not on purpose. But it's up to you to do your thing and live the way you want.
This month of May will be a lot of fun for me and you'll see soon why on my social media. I have more planned this Summer and after. To reach my goals I work hard (on a minimum salary), pay my bills, save up money as much as possible so I get to make my dreams come true.
I wish you all to succeed at what you are doing. And take this advice from a girl who left her life being dictated by pretty much everyone's opinion : do your thing and fuck everyone ♥
