#Everyday Inspiration,Day Five: Hook ‘Em With a Quote

Day Five: Hook ‘Em With A Quote.’
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

__Bernard M. Baruch

I like this quote, it gives me a lot of pleasure. I always followed my mind. I have a sibling who is too particular of her attire. I think she loses a lot of sleep over what she’d wear, what looks good etc.

These are some things I find is a waste of time. Her idiosyncrasies at times rubbed me the wrong way. For instance she said, ‘Ranu do not tell anyone you have a B.ED degree’

‘Why?’ I said.

‘People will make fun of you.’ was the reply.

I told her, ‘I do not care.’

When I completed my education, my eldest brother forced me to apply for a job where my sibling was the principal. I told him I will not accept the job if I get it.

My aim was to teach in a school, but my brother thought, there’s a huge difference between teaching in a school or in a college.

‘Do you like the title school teacher or College lecturer.’ He said.

‘I’m not concerned about titles, I want to do something that pleases me, I’E, teach young children.’

The result of the interview was out, I was selected to teach in the college. I turned it down, much to the dismay of my brother.

I didn’t mind the rules and regulations of the schools where I studied. We had to wear uniforms, I did not have any problems obeying the rules.

I have no issues wearing a mask when I go out in public in this age of pandemic. Those who break it are not only endangering themselves but the whole community.

As long as I’m comfortable with the decisions I make, I’ll always be myself, regardless of what people think.

I came to this world alone and I’ll leave it alone. I see no harm living my life the way it suits me.

    • Dear Robert,
      I never tried to live my life as others would like. Why should I try to please anyone. I’ll go this way only once, I should do this my way. Thank you Robert, you’ve been a great friend. 🙂
