Life, As Your Own

Published November 29, 2022 by tindertender

When your mind is your own
You can soar to great heights
Without fear of being restricted

When your voice is your own
You can speak authentically
Without fear of being silenced

When your heart is your own
You can love fully and deeply
Without fear of it being broken

When your identity is your own
You can embody many versions of yourself
Without fear of losing who you are

When your path is your own
You can explore new roads and wander through life
Without fear of becoming lost

When your success is your own
You can embark upon it eagerly
Without fear of failure

When your dreams are your own
You can pursue them passionately
Without fear of being ridiculed

And when your life is your own
You can live as you choose
Without fear of criticism or judgement
Understanding that who you are
And where you are going
Need not be validated or approved of by others
As it is dictated and defined by you.
