I feel as if I am going through a period in my life where I need to start trusting my own counsel and intuition. If I don’t, what good am I to myself, or anyone else for that matter?
I am also learning not to tell others too much about what is currently going on in my life. Unless I really trust their counsel, or know they have been through something similar, I keep things to myself. Does it mean I care for these individuals any less? Absolutely not. Sometimes I just prefer to enjoy my life and let my world be my own.
There are some choices I have made in my personal life about which some well-meaning friends have voiced their opinion. When I call them out on their opinion, I am met with the response of, “Well Amy, I just don’t want you to get hurt or make a mistake.” Really, I say to myself, who are you to judge me?
Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions ~ Will Smith
I also feel that some well-meaning friends, one who I thought were more open-minded and spiritual, are turning out to be the most judgmental of all. I was surprised when, after I had set a clear boundary about a particular subject, this person decided to ask me about it anyway.
I was actually shocked, to be honest. I never thought in a million years she would say something in the first place. This woman has been there for me through thick and thin. She has even commented on how resilient I am for what I have been through the last six years of my life. For the life of me, I do not know why she would question my judgment on my life in the first place?
When another well-meaning friend asked me a question and I answered, I was met with negativity. In the past, I would feed into the negativity by asking her if that is what she felt. I didn’t go there. In fact, I just let it slide.
I know others may not understand why I sometimes do the things I do, but I allow myself to create my own reality without feeling judged. I feel if I make a so-called “mistake” I do not consider it a failure, but a learning curve. Plus, I am an adult who will live with the consequences of my actions and decisions. It is I who will need to look at myself in the mirror and take responsibility for my actions and decisions.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life… Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition ~ Steve Jobs
I desire to be happy, like everyone else. I feel at this point in my life I have learned some valuable lessons. I know I have taken risks, like moving down to Florida and leaving a marriage that was detrimental to my well-being. I feel I have proven to myself I can do it on my own.
It has taken me years to undo the learning and programming from my childhood. Sometimes you have to stop living someone else’s ideas, dreams, and aspirations. You need to follow your own heart. I feel I have reached a point in my life where I have done the work. I may not live the life others want for me, but I am living the life I truly desire. And that is all that truly matters in the end.
