    Parents do it often thinking that they can relive their glory days through their kids, Instead of asking what their dreams are. It happened to me before and I was not happy. Now I am pursuing my own dreams because of it.

    It is important to know what our heart desires and go after it. Letting others make that decision for us is the cause of unhappiness.

    Great quote. One must have his own dream. Fulfilling his own dream gives the best satisfaction. Don’t live someone else’s dream.

    Succumbing to another person’s dream has been one of the things that causes depression. We need to live our own dream and find fulfilment.

    Quote on point and I always refused to live the lives of others. I’m a unique person and I only dwell with my uniqueness.

    Everybody has a road and a choice, is better to take actions instead of live the dreams of others and later blame them for our sadness.

    Yes, Tom. It’s good to be true to yourself. A good way to keep your goals in check is to live up to the dreams you had as a child and be the mirror image of your role models and inspirations.
