Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

What would be the advice to 25 year old self?

If you can give any advice to your 25 year old self, what would be that advice?

A man stood up and asked this question to Brené Brown during the Creative Live session with Chase Jarvis.

Brené is an inspirational speaker, researcher, and story teller. She gave a talk on Ted talk and you should watch it. It will worth every second watching and listening her stories. She also got 3 books in New York Times top ten best selling. She is amazing.

I feel this question is very interesting. I know that I'm only 30 year old and it's not very far from 25 year old at all. But it would be great if I know the future answer to my 25 year old when I'm not far from 25. Therefore, I listen to other creatives' advice then their 25 year old self.

Here is Brené's answer;

I would tell my 25 year old self that
all the pleasing and proving and perfecting that you are doing is getting in the way of what you are suppose to be doing.
You can never live the life that you want to live and not disappoint other people.
You need to choose now.
You are going to piss some people off.
You are going to let down some people.
If you are yourself.
— Brené Brown
Because not everyone can like every one.
— Chase Jarvis
You have something that only you can bring to the world whether you are a photographer or a writer, or a thinker.
You got something that only uniquely you can bring and if you try to keep everyone around you happy while you are bringing that and you don’t bring it and you are not utilizing your gift is dangerous.
— Brené Brown
