We need to empower ourselves to achieve the life we desire. While doing this, however, we need to remember that our actions impact others.
We have the right to lead the life we want. We do not, however, have the right to take away the rights of others. We do not have the right to harm others.
Everything we do has an impact on those around us, just as what they do has an impact on us. We need to be conscious of this and think about how our actions will affect those around us, especially those who are closest to us.
This can be a delicate, and sometimes difficult, balancing act. But it is one we all need to master.
