You can restrict yourself to certain festivities or occasions of joy. And that’s okay. But you miss out on so much potential happiness.
You may not like all the relatives, but there are always some with whom you can have a good time. Cutting people or occasions may seem like a win but the win can be to participate in many things and experience the joy of life.
Spending time with people boosts your energy and makes you happy. Your life will have beautiful graphs of high and low when you participate in such things.
Sure, it isn’t mandatory but for the majority – this is a golden ticket. You can simply be open to new ideas, workshop and festivities. And join in the fun. You will have a good time. And in case, people aren’t fun or good, you can join another festivity. When you are open to many things, you are free to do whatever.
You aren’t stuck with one thing which you want to do, you are experimenting with life’s choices and making the most of it.
Isn’t life making the most of what you have anyway? Go and live to the fullest, you deserve this and more.
