Trust the wait. Embrace the uncertainty. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible – Mandy Hale⁣

For some reason, most of us are expected to make major life decisions according to the timelines set by someone else.⁣

We are expected to cater to their wishes while disregarding what we want, lest they get offended by us taking our lives into our own hands.⁣

Everyone grows at their own pace and everyone needs time to figure things like education, career, marriage or any other decision concerning their life. ⁣

The last thing we need is someone constantly putting pressure on them to act fast and create an environment where even a slight delay can seem life threatening when it isn’t.⁣

Giving into their demands may seem rational because that’s what everyone expects you to do but ask yourself if it is really what you want.⁣

Because if you are not really happy about those decisions then it becomes an added burden on your head which ends up complicating everything.⁣

One good thing about taking your own decisions is that you are more likely to accept the responsibility of whatever happens next instead of blaming it on someone else.⁣

So it is important to trust yourself and take all the time you want to make an informed choice and not let outside pressure dictate your life.⁣

Because you are the one who has to live with the consequences of decisions, not them.
