The answer better fuckin’ be yourself! For a good part of my life I listened to the voices of those who wanted me to conform. I went to the good college. I took the corporate job. I had creative outlets on the side but understood that they couldn’t be a real job. Until they were.
I spent a lot of my twenties and early thirties trying to please other people by doing what they thought I should do. How do you think that turned out? Uh huh. It didn’t make them happy and it sure as shit made me miserable.
Luckily I decided to start listening to my intuition right then and there and it never lets me down. Doing the next right thing always seems to work. So my best advice to you is Make Your Own Damn Self happy. Then when others are making you happy as well its just icing on the literal cake that is sitting in front of me right now making me happy. See how easy this is!!
