When you choose to be indifferent, you either gain people's respect or loose it. Doing things because it pleases others make's you loose respect for yourself. So which would you rather have? Having someone congratulate you for doing something you had to think twice about or feeling empowered because you chose to do it for yourself without having regrets? Life doesn't mean the same to someone who is just blending in as to someone who is taking risks and sticking out and facing what life really has to offer.
"Everything in life is an omen." The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Don't be the one to wonder what something would be like especially if you can experience it for yourself.
