Life values ​​are like fingerprints - everyone has their own

Hello my dear friends. To be honest, I'm not in the best mood today. I feel very tired... On the other hand, this is a great lesson for me: you are already old enough not to do what you don't want to do.

It was a mistake to go to visit a former classmate. We haven't seen each other for over ten years. During this time, my life has changed dramatically. I went from being a career woman and university law professor to being a photographer and owner of an animal shelter.

It still seems strange to my former environment. However, this seems strange to many. Before, I tried to explain something to someone. But now I have neither the strength nor the desire to do so. It seems to me that everyone chooses how to live. And as long as we do not violate each other's rights, our choice remains our own business.

I started by saying this trip was a mistake. And it is. Our interests were too different. She proudly showed me a huge house and a huge area around the house (about 120 square meters). But I looked at all this and thought ... what a place for birds and dogs! 😁

But it's not that. It's about talking. She and her husband clearly condemned my way of life... And it does not seem to me as they spoke about it quite openly. They didn't understand how they could choose animals over foreign trips, trendy clothes, and trendy hangouts. It was very stupid and embarrassing. I felt like a strange creature in a zoo.

I tried to explain something. I had an interesting and busy life, I said, and now it's time to take care of someone else. But it was all in vain.

The fact that all my words flew into the void, I realized when she called me the next day.

  • Come to us.
  • But I'm busy!
  • What are you going to do with your animals? Feed them and come! You are bored there!
    I didn't know what to answer! How do I explain to her that I love my life and love taking care of my animals? And most importantly, why do I have to explain this?

    Exactly why I am writing all this. The problem is that often we are heavily dependent on public opinion. And we do not do what we love, but what is socially approved. I have seen a lot of students who went to law school just because it's prestigious. But this approach does not make us happy. For a long time I could not decide to change something in my life. I thought that someday later I would take up photography and have a lot of animals. But then I realized that this may never come later.

Hello my dear friends. To be honest, I'm not in the best mood today. I feel very tired...

Hope you'll get your energy back in no time :)

I understand how it feels, even though I'm kinda young sometimes too I feel tired and not really wanting to do anything, you did this post and for that you should be proud! Great job

She and her husband clearly condemned my way of life... And it does not seem to me as they spoke about it quite openly.

As humans we do not understand what we do not experience, they must be too used to their way of living fully in The Matrix that when they see people that are trying to get out if it they don't understand and get scared, The Matrix has such an effect on them that they try to lure in it everyone they have around, the system is strong!

You should be proud of your way and actually you showed them something new, they just showed you what you have been seeing in your life for years, you win here, I respect you, not them, you, they should open up their mind a bit 😋

The problem is that often we are heavily dependent on public opinion. And we do not do what we love, but what is socially approved.

How right you are...so right, I really enjoyed reading this and I definitely see more fun in spending time around animals than humans 🤗

Wish you a great day and say hello to your animals and birds 😋

I don´t know you personally but after reading this, I am even more proud of you than I was before... Your character is so much more than all their money and possession combined ;) And I am also sure you have much more love in your life than them. Animals are extremely loving creatures.

How can they say you are bored, and tell you what to do??? Asking would have been a kind thing, but it sounds more like an order? That's just rude!

Moral story- keep doing you no matter what ! Your life Your rules ..
as long as you find joy and solace in what you are doing , that is really all that matters not other people’s validation.

My public opinion (of one, but I'm still the public) is that I admire your compassion and empathy and your ability to pursue what matters most to you.
Trendy law people can go do their trendy law people things. The beasts don't care about trendy, and they are always happy you are there. Except maybe that owl guy, forgot his name. He doesn't seem very happy about anybody. Maybe he should go to law school.
