I’m always told what to do

told what to do

How often do you get told to not try or told that you are wrong.

I am not talking about facts, I am talking about you personally.

Let’s say, you have always dreamt your life would be a certain way. A certain job or lifestyle for example, yet you wake up every morning doing something you don’t enjoy in order to make ends meet.



You may say to someone that something has got to change but you are told that you are greedy for wanting more. You are told to just keep doing your job and be appreciative of what you have already. They shut down your thoughts of the new life you have been searching for.

Where is your voice?

Why do you feel that others feelings are more important than your own?

You are the expert when it comes to your happiness, yet you feel compelled to listen to others in regards to your own happiness! You end up dismissing your own needs to fit in with others’ lives or what is expected of you.

It sounds odd to think that others are telling you what you want, how to act, where to go and what should make you happy in your life.

Now these people are not being malicious, they are trying to help you. It’s good to listen to others advice in regards to doing something new or ideas to help you towards your goal, but  let’s try and cut out the voices of people telling you that what you want is not right.

You have nothing to lose.

Try one new thing this week that you have always wanted to do. It doesn’t need to be a huge life changing event, just something that will bring you a little bit of happiness, listening to your voice.

What do you want to do right now?
