People whom I loved dearly left me when I needed them the most. People whom I trusted talked behind my back when I made a mistake. People whom I cared for treated me trash when their work was done. I have learned that I should not expect anything from people.

One day, I asked myself, “Why should my happiness depend on others?”

It should not.

I should impress myself, not others. There are times when I still do things to impress others. I am learning to do what makes me happy, not others.

I am happy to be myself, not what others want me to be.

I am living for myself, not others.

I am breathing for myself, not others.
