Dreams are to be pursued, not told

Hello everybody! Do you know those moments when you have big dreams? Like when you feel that you can conquer the world? Well, today is about dreams.

Since I was a kid, I had lots of dreams…so many plans and dreams, that I was so happy to tell others about. Until one point. Until the day I realized that not everyone who calls themselves a friend, actually is. You can never be sure of the true intentions of anyone. Family, friends, lovers, coworkers, no one can truly guarantee that they are true to you.

If I can give you a piece of advice, stop telling people your moves. Stop telling them every single dream of you. Instead, work for it. In silence. You will fail, multiple times. Life is not a win-win game. But at least you will know that it was all your fault. What do I mean by this? Well, let me tell you a story. One of my dear people, someone who I truly trusted and loved, seemed to always be so “protective and loving”. Little did I know she was just jealous. Every time I was telling her about a new project or interview she behaved really happy for me until the day that the event was supposed to happen. On that day, every single time, she was finding a reason to put me down; either that “maybe” I am not qualified or good enough, maybe I am just losing time for nothing, and so on. And although I knew what I can do, mentally she was draining me so much, that I was blocking myself, which made me lose not only jobs but also give up on dreams that I really wanted to pursue.

And this continued until one day when I completely stopped telling people about my life. Not even a word. And believe me, that there was a huge difference. Because I was showing them the new me. Nothing else. I went from failure to failure, until I got the chance to do what I want. Until I found my way. Don’t wait for validation from others. Look inside you and see what you are capable of. No one knows you better than yourself.

And never forget: the sky is the limit. Love you all and have a fantastic weekend!!!
