Often, we don't pursue something we love because of the people we love. We don't want to make waves in a relationship or put strain on a friendship that doesn't seem like it can handle it. So, we put our passions to the side and continue going as normal. Allowing someone else to decide what's best in your love, even if in a totally noninvasive way like this, only hurts us. When you follow your passions, hobbies, and desires, we must realize that it isn't up to anyone else. We learn to create our own paths and follow them. These personal boundaries are for you only, no one else, and they help you be happier. Following a path you love will always make us happier than following on set for us by someone else!
