Don’t Let Anybody Define You – A Tyler Perry Quote

Hey guys,

I live my life outside of the box because when I die they’re going to put me into one!

Many times in this life, people will try to tell you what you can and cannot do. They will also try to tell you who you are and who you are not. DON’T LET ANYBODY DEFINE YOU! When I was a kid, I had a teacher tell me that I would never be a millionaire because I was black and the system was set up to keep me down. This was a TEACHER! Can you believe that? I’m so glad that my little boy mind didn’t accept that. I have often been told that I wouldn’t make it because I was poor or because of the color of my skin. I had family members tell me I would never make it and my dreams would never come true for one reason or another… boy were they wrong. If I had listened to any of those voices I wouldn’t be here writing this to you. Hear me when I say this to you: no matter what anyone says to you, LIVE YOUR LIFE!! Follow that still small voice inside of you. That is GOD’s Holy Spirit and I think we all have the capacity to hear that voice. We just need to still ourselves to hear it. You must silence all the outside voices in order to hear THE voice. I try to stay as clear as I can so that I can hear it. It’s not always easy, but necessary.    This is your life. Make decisions based on your own path. Let no one define it for you!

If you live the life everyone else wants you to live and you never live the life you want to live, then are you really living??    Life is so short… Live it to the fullest!!

    I simply love this. It took me a long time to learn this lesson & to start living my life for myself … vs what other’s wanted me to do, say, & how they wanted me to act. When I finally made the choice to live for me, those same people called me crazy, said I had lost my mind, what was I thinking I was not capable of doing anything outside the box & on my own. I did it anyway and turned out .. I was the happiest I had been in forever.. with must my little family we were truly happy with out all the outside drama that everyone else kept dragging into our lives. Thank you fover reminding we have to get the courage to step out, make that choice to live for ourselves in order to truly be happy and achieve our dreams. BTW .. I love your inspirational undertones to your movies and mini-series. Robin
