Often we become so distracted by how others judge us. We sometimes begin judging ourselves, which causes our standards to no longer be our own. If you don’t pay close attention, you can become a living puppet to a stranger. Cut the strings before you become too entangled. Live the life that you envision for yourself. However, make sure you set your standards based on honesty and without delusions. If your standards include a five-star quality of life, so what? Setting your standards allows you to care less about what others think because you will already know that you live well enough according to the standards you set for yourself.
