You can listen to advice of family, friends, or experts in a field but ultimately it is your responsibility to live life as you see fit. You and only you are responsible for your thoughts and actions. What it comes down to is you have to depend on your own judgment and do what you feel is necessary in life.
You can listen to others and their ideas and use some of those thoughts for your own life if you like but be original. Be who you are. You don’t have to be exactly like someone that you admire. You can think about whatever you enjoy about who they are and then make it your own.
Listen to what others may have to say but know that when it comes down to making a choice it is solely up to you. Listen to your heart my friend.
