It is OK to live the life you want. And it is OK to say “no” to everything else.
It is OK to live a calm life, a life free from trying to live up to someone else’s idea of how your life should look.
Are you striving to love God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength?
Are you striving to love your neighbor as yourself?
Then go and be free, dear one. Because loving God and loving Others actually matter the most in all the busyness of this loud and opinionated world.
Everything else is debatable…
