Who have you been listening to? Who has been the decision maker in your life? The majority of us have others in our ears, telling us what we should do and how we should live.
For years I would allow others to persuade me. It was not until recently that I reflected on my life and realized that the life I had been living was the life designed by others. I began to identify sources, the origin to many things in my life. I noticed a pattern. I made certain decisions because someone else wanted me to and not because I wanted to. At the end of the day, we are responsible for the life we live. It was me, after all, that gave these people permission to persuade me. With that being said, I have decided to take back my power and take control of my own life.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with advice or suggestions but we have to create boundaries. We must ask ourselves, “Is this best for me? Is this what I want?” After all, you are the only person that will be with you throughout your journey, every step of the way. Therefore, it is important that you make you happy. It’s imperative that you make decisions best for you. It’s important that you take control of your own life.
