When you get to this point in your life it is very freeing and I think it comes with age.
When you are young you are concerned about your peers, what they think, what they are doing, wearing, or going but as you mature you figure out it really doesn’t matter what your peers, friends, even family think. What’s important is how you feel about yourself without anyone’s approval.
Some people may see this as being selfish, personally, I see it as taking care of yourself. What do you think?
