“If one succumbs to the dreams of another instead of their own, they will live a life of dissatisfaction.” —Thomas Slatin
That’s true… We should not live someone else’s dream..we should pursue our own dream.. That makes us stand out
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.
So many people live unfulfilling lives by pursuing dreams that are not truly of their won making. Thanks for the lovely quote.
Wow, what an insightful quote. Always looking at other people can cause great dissatisfaction.
This rings very true. The only person we should compete with is ourselves.
I couldn’t agree more with this. Always follow your own dreams.
You can never fits in into another’s dreams. You can only get contentment and fulfilment from doing what delight you.
Well said, Tom. I will add this to the quote – it will only lead to frustration and fake life. I love the quote!
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.
What a !meaningful and reasonable quote. It is better to lead yourself to the wrong part than being lead to the wrong part by someone else. Thanks for this post.
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.
Love the quote. It speaks from the heart and I can definitely relate to it. This is just beautiful.
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.
