No matter what you do or don’t do, someone will be unhappy with what you do. I guarantee it. While there are always complexities involved in making your heartfelt choices, you are not here to live someone else’s life. You are not here to sacrifice your freedom for others. You are not here to live by someone else’s standards. You are here to be real. You are here to claim your time, energy, and choices as your own. Collaborate and have consideration. Yes. Sacrifice? No. Definitely not.
What’s more, often you’ll find that when you do go out of your way for someone, or do what they want you to do, they will indicate it wasn’t quite enough or wasn’t done in exactly the way they wanted. So, after all that, you both lose. Make it a part of your life plan to work towards making choices that lead you to be real.
