Making choices about your life based on what you think other people want you to do is not only unhealthy, it’s also unwise. No one knows what is best for you better than you, so stop listening to the know-it-alls who just love to hear themselves talk. Trust yourself. Even if you make a mistake, it will be one that teaches you an important lesson. It’ll also help you avoid that same pitfall next time. Independent thinking is not only healthy, it’s wise!
