Don’t Let These Things Define You

By Lyndsay @balancebrunette

Our lives are meant to be lived, but yet many of us can find ourselves trapped in our own circumstance. Doing the same things each day, spending time with people that drain our energy, and perhaps not living our lives in the way we once envisioned are all things that can make us feel trapped. It’s funny that many of us can be defined by what we think we should be doing, rather than what we want to be doing. Here are some of the things that shouldn’t define who you are as a person!

Your career

Not all of us are lucky enough to know what we want to do with our lives when we are in school. Which means we often find ourselves in a situation where we get a job just to make ends meet. Some people are defined by their chosen career and love that, others choose not to be. Your career should be something you feel passionate about and enjoy doing, after all, a huge chunk of your time is spent doing it. But unless it really has any gravitas to define who you are don’t let it it dictate how you spend your life and who you are as a person. 

Your relationship and the future

Your relationship can often be defined by what society thinks you should be doing. The main script is girl meets boy, girl falls in love, boy will want to ask her to marry them. You may even look online yourself and click here for diamond engagement rings while daydreaming about the big day. But it isn’t always that pain sailing. It doesn’t matter who you fall in love with, whether you choose to marry or not, don’t let your relationship define you, instead embrace it for what it is. 

Whether you choose to have children

Another thing that society may expect is children, which isn’t always the case for some couples. It isn’t always a given. You may not be able to have children or find that you have trouble conceiving. It could be you choose not to, because you don’t feel that maternal instinct. All feelings are valid and whether you choose to have children or not should not be something that you feel pressured towards. 


You may find that you also let your friendships define who you are as a person. It could be that you are governed by who you spend your time with. Friendships can be the very best of you, but they also have the power to inflict and influence how you spend your time. Surround yourself with people that built you up and have good energy. Avoid the people that zap the life out of you and don’t have your best interests at heart. 

Your lifestyle

Finally, your lifestyle. Your lifestyle may be all about being plant based or full of exercise. Whether it is positivity and embracing crystals or choosing to believe in star signs. Your lifestyle is yours to make and so don’t let it define you as a person, rather let it be who you are and what you are all about. 

I hope this has given you something to think about when it comes to how you live your life!
