Living for ourselves.

Hello once again. I go by the name of Brad H., and I thank you for taking the time to read my post. Hope all is well with anyone who takes out the time to read this. Tonight I want to write about something that has been on my mind the last week or so. Well first I want to ask as question. How many of us are really living for ourselves? What do I mean when I say living for ourselves? Are you, or have you been in a situation where you felt pressured by someone else to do something you really didn't want? Maybe it was a family member, a spouse, or someone you consider a friend. I'm willing to be that almost all of us have been in this situation at one point or another.

I know that we sometimes have to do things we don't like. That is just life in general. However, it's important to remember that we must live for ourselves. We only get one opportunity, and one shot at this thing called life. We must make OURSELVES as happy as we possibly can. When it's over, it's over with. Some of my family members probably wonder why I am so defiant about certain things they ask of me. It's because I want to do things on my own terms. Not because I'm conforming to what someone else wants. There's a song by a hip hop artist named Buff1 called "Once". One of the lines in the song goes; "They call it your life, cause it's yours to live". That right there sums it all up. I challenge anyone who reads this who feels like they are living for others and not themselves, to take the challenge and rise up and do YOU! I struggle with this sometimes myself. I'm challenging myself as well to do this. My posts are not just about talking to other people, but myself as well. Lets focus on being better people, and living OUR lives to the fullest. Well I'm going to sign off for now. I hope you enjoyed this, and I hope someone can relate to what I'm saying.

I'll be back soon with more topics to discuss. Again I hope all is well with everyone. Peace, love, and blessings to all.


  1. I too struggle with this Brad.
    Oftentimes, I truly do have to bend to my environment, say no more.
    But I have my own quiet way of rising up!
    Good call Brad, I agree with you.
    We only get one shot at communication in life.
    Let us not be passive and confused about it, because if we are, that is precisely what we will get back.

    1. Hello there AutumnOctober. I think a lot of us struggle with this from time to time. I like the fact that you rise up in your own subtle way. I think that's a good thing and shows that you have a lot of self control. Thanks for viewing and giving your feedback.

  2. This is inspiring to me. Need I say more? Gives me hope! Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much for taking out the time to read. I'm glad you found it inspirational.
