“There is more to life than watching other people live it.” (Hitch 2005)
I find this quote to be so true. There are so many people that live their lives vicariously through someone else. Whether that be a friend, a family member, a celebrity, or a total stranger. People go on adventures through their TV screen while they sit on a their couch. They tour the world through pictures that their friends put up on facebook. They find happiness by watching someone else live a happy life.
These people think that their life is fulfulling, but there is so much more to life than that. Go on the adventures yourself, see the world, fall in love, be happy.
In life, everyone should have their own scars, their own battle stories. Their own struggles and their own successes.
Talking about this quote, reminds me of a second quote from another movie:
“You can’t just sit their and put everyone else’s lives before your own and call it love.” (Perks of Being a Wallflower 2014)
It isn’t selfish to live your own life. To get everything out of your life that you possibly can. You only get one life to do everything that you wish to do. You should live your life accordingly.
