Have you ever had the realization suddenly that the decisions you are making that are making you absolutely miserable are actually what someone else wanted you to do? I know I have!
You will never be happy if you are making decisions based on what will make someone else happy. You are the one that has to live with the decision and if you are miserable, how is that good in any way?
There was a time when I would let people guilt me into decisions. I let them talk me into them. I wanted to impress them, and make sure they liked me so I did what other people wanted.
Was it right for me?
I put into action all the tools that I knew to use to manifest what I wanted in my life and I put into action the steps to get there. I made new decisions that made me happy and I walked away from the ones that made me miserable. And I had no regrets in doing so.
Hope returned. Excitement returned.
When you finally put in place what you REALLY want in life and stop doing what someone else thinks is best for you, your life and opportunities will open up. You will find yourself and learn to love yourself.
It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks you should do. It is not their life.
When you learn how to respectfully hear other people’s opinions but not take them on as gospel you will open a whole new world. When you learn to say I appreciate your input but I have made my decision and it is a different path that is right for me, you will be free. You won’t spend so much time in your head worrying about what people think. You will spend all your time in your heart knowing you have done the best for you.
So if you are spending your time trying to impress someone else or make them proud of you…stop. The only one that you need to be proud of you is yourself. That is all that matters.
Spend time connecting with your inner guidance. You will be amazed at what comes from it.
