“Our lives are our own. It is not for someone else to dictate to us how we should live them. All that awaits those who allow themselves to be continually swayed by what other people say or do is unhappiness. We simply need to have the self-belief to be able to say: “This is right. This is the path I will follow. I am content.” Happiness is born from such inner fortitude.”
