You don’t need permission from others to make the decisions you want to make or to have the life you want to live. It’s no one’s business, really. There is no need to get a consensus from your group of friends on what you should do with your life, who you should date or where you should live. Yes, of course you want to take their opinions into consideration when you are facing a tough choice but you are not bound to do what they say. It’s your life and you have to live with the choices. So make sure you’re making decisions you can live with.
