In Your Next Life Chapter, Enter Your Selfish Era

In your next life chapter, don’t hesitate to ask for what you deserve. You’re not greedy for wanting more. You are allowed to have high expectations and high hopes. You are allowed to hold others to a certain standard. You don’t have to accept the breadcrumbs that they scatter in front of you. You can hold out for more. If they aren’t interested in giving you what you deserve, then find someone who will. They’re out there. They just might take some time to find. But the journey will be worth it in the end.

In your next life chapter, don’t fall back into your usual people-pleasing ways. Don’t automatically do what others ask when you have zero interest in it. Yes, you should be there for the people you care about the most, but don’t let them guide you. Don’t let them make your choices for you because this is your story. You get to write it. You can take their input into consideration, but at the end of the day, you should be following your own heart.

In your next life chapter, embrace your selfish side. Stop worrying so much about what others expect from you and do whatever your heart desires. As long as you aren’t hurting anyone, it doesn’t matter how others view you. Your reputation isn’t nearly as important as your happiness or comfort, so do what you have been daydreaming about doing. Don’t hold yourself back. Don’t let fear consume you. Others might not understand the path you take, they might not agree with your choices, but what does it matter? They get to choose their route and you get to choose yours. The people who genuinely care about you are going to support you, no matter what, because all they want is to see you happy. And everyone else doesn’t matter anyway. You don’t need their validation. You need to do what feels right for you, personally.  

In your next life chapter, embrace your most authentic self. Don’t shrink yourself for others. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not in order to gain approval. Don’t worry about the way you might be judged for your real opinions and desires. It’s better to find a small group of people who love you for being yourself than to have everyone love you for who they mistakenly believe you are. The real you is more than enough. You don’t have to put on a performance in order to make others love you. You’re worth loving, exactly the way you are.

In your next life chapter, chase after what you want. Don’t convince yourself your dreams are too big, or that you don’t deserve that level of happiness. Take a real chance on yourself. Believe you have what it takes. Walk around with confidence because you can handle whatever you tackle. You can make this life a spectacular one.

In your next life chapter, follow your heart. Do what makes you happiest. Forget everyone else and focus on the person in the mirror for a change.
