While most people in Bhutan would view being of your own choice as a matter of joke, many friends, like my own, believe that being who you are and doing things of your own choice help shaping your life better and more fun. This is because life is a matter of chance and we rarely get this wonderful opportunity. We must live this life fruitfully enjoying every tic-toc of the time doing things of our own choice. We should be aware of who we are and must be ourselves all the time. At the same time, it does not mean that we shouldn't listen to our parents and elders. We must listen to them but we must also learn to filter and analyse because at the end, the ultimate result is going to hammer on us, not them.
Being your own kind and doing things of your own choice will better your life mentally and physically. You would not have to cry over a split milk regretting for the things which you didn't wish to do.In words of Bob Marley, "wanting to be someone else is the waste of person you are." Every individual is born with different talents , different potentials and different capabilities. You might never know what potential you have in you when you do things according to others direction or commands. You will regret when you attain your 80s and after looking behind in your life to see what you have done and what you have been all these years. You would see nothing other than a Hypocrite. And at that very moment, you are going to be sorry for your life resembling not the way you wanted or desired. Do things Of Your Own Choice.
