I think one of the hardest things in life is trying to deal with the fact that you cannot please everyone. It’s something I’ve been struggling with for a long time and especially at this point in my life. It’s hard to try to be the best daughter, friend, niece, aunt, sister, etc. that you can be while also trying to make yourself happy. The line of not being selfish and not letting other control your life is very slim. I sometimes wonder how people do it and how I can better handle situations in which I have to make hard choices. Where do you draw the line? Who has more of an impact or importance in your life? Why do we care so much? These are questions I ask myself.

It’s my first day of 22 and I actually feel different this year. I feel like 22 brings this weight of burden. ‘Do something with your life now’ burden. Or maybe it’s a blessing. We shall see.
