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.
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.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
