Separate yourself from the expectations

.…the decision to get out of bed early and go for a run… so you can be around to see your children grow up, not so you can look good in the mirror. Do your makeup because it gives you confidence, because the ritual of applying it is some quiet time to yourself… not to cover up your flaws. Hire a trainer because you want to learn the discipline of weightlifting or boxing… not because you just want someone to tell you what to do……

Daily Stoic

The sooner you separate yourself from the expectations of others, your ego and just do things that are good, that matter and that help others, the sooner you will be happy. Hedonism is the enemy of humanity!
