15 People Who Dared to Do What They Wanted, and the Whole World Applauded Them for It

We all know that it’s important to listen to our heart and do what it tells us to. But we rarely dare do this because of various circumstances and excuses. Whether it’s losing weight or getting vaccinated, the characters in our compilation are the ones who ventured to do what they wanted and never looked back.

We at Bright Side admire such people and encourage you to follow your heart more often. But until then, let’s take a look at the achievements of the people featured in our article.

“I decided to finally get vaccinated behind my anti-vax parents’ back!”

“Our son has Asperger’s and went out of his comfort zone to play the Mad Hatter.”

“I always hid it, but now I want to share with you my birthmark in the center of my forehead.”

“I manually pulled weeds for several hours and personally apologized to every critter and rehoused them into the yard.”
