You-dont-have-to-But-youYou don’t have to maximise your potential.

You don’t have to bring out the best in others.

You don’t have to show your art to the world.

You don’t have to do work that matters.

You don’t have to keep learning and growing.

You don’t have to keep working when everyone else has stopped.

You don’t have to use your leisure time to benefit others.

You don’t have to forgive those who have hurt or doubted you.

You don’t have to smile in the face of adversity.

You don’t have to take risks to follow your dreams.

You don’t have to make a positive difference in the world.

You don’t have to do any of these things and if you treated them as if you did, they would soon become a chore.

But you get to do them, and that’s exciting!
