Life is about compromises. Whether it's about compromising with your spouse/partner, negotiating with your boss or trying to get a better deal on a car, we all compromise on events and circumstances that enter our lives.
There is one thing though, I'd encourage you to never compromise on. You. Who you are and the dreams you have in your life. Stay strong in your beliefs. Now, if you decide that you want to make changes in your life, do it because you've decided to, not because you think others will be happy about it.
I encourage you to always look at the big picture but regarding your ambitions, your dreams, your innermost desires, be true to you. At the end of the day, the decisions we make are the ones we'll have to live the rest of our lives with. You owe it to yourself to be happy and feel good about who you are and what you are doing with your life.
Make the most of it. Start today!
