Just do whatever makes you happy
The question is - how to live? How to live beautifully, how to live happily and peacefully?
My answer to this question would be, allow people to do whatever they want and what they need to do to be happy. But you must also do whatever you want to do to be Happy.
That way, others will be happy to do what they want and what they think is good, and you will take care of yourself. You should never force anyone into anything, if he does not want to do it, you can advise him, but if he does not want to follow the advice of others let him do his own thing.
And most importantly, never ask anyone to love you. Anyone who wants to be with you, would do anything to be with you.
So let everyone decide for themselves whether they will be a part of your life forever or not.
