A lesson my child taught me

Yesterday, my oldest son was wearing two different colors of socks. First, I mentioned about it, but then he stopped me with one question.

“I don’t care, does it matter?”

Honestly, I couldn’t really answer him, so I just told him that he is right. You decide what you should wear.

Why should we let the outside world define what we are, and what we are wearing?

Why can’t we be free from what others might think about us?

A true person should be free from others’ opinions and judgment.

Life on your own terms and why most people can’t do it?

I admit. I can’t live a so-called normal life. The last time I had a normal job was sometime in the late eighties. I have taken many risks, I have traveled a lot, and because I had an open mind, I met many wonderful people around the world.

I like to work with my own schedule and I like to have the freedom to choose the people around me.

I don’t need any negativity around me. We have just one life, and I prefer to experience life on my own terms.

Of course, it’s not always easy, but life can be hard anyway, so is it better to live your life with your own rules?
