I want to live a happy fulfilled life. To do so, it will take a conscious effort, lots of energy, and sometimes even lots of time. Anyone who tries to make me feel ashamed for striving to be better may simply be ashamed of themselves for not striving to be their own optimal self. I will not live for them. I will Strive to do my best and admire my battles I overcome. I will live my life to the fullest for me.
