Thought of the Day: Letting Others Down

Eleanor Roosevelt quote

Many of us struggle with the idea of letting others down. Sometimes it’s the people who raised us or the people who we look up to. Sometimes it’s the people who have helped us out or the people who have been kind to us. We do not want to come across as ungrateful, selfish or inconsiderate. We want to make them proud. But we cannot always be guided by what people think or by what would be best for other people. Sometimes, we have to let them down to pursue what’s best for us. And that doesn’t make us a monster. If those people are invested in us, they will move past it and be happy for us. We can’t always please everyone.
