You Don’t Need to Justify Yourself

Too often than not, we feel we need to justify ourselves, justify our decisions, justify our purchases and our lifestyle choices.

In today’s world, it seems the apex justification is economic. For example, we justify our need to exercise and sleep “in order to be more productive at work, and thus make more money, or increase our earning potential”.

We justify our “vices”, because we “deserve” a break from work, or we just want to “treat ourselves”.

But isn’t it more robust to just do what we desire, without a need to justify ourselves, or to kowtow to some third party or authority?
