Seeking My Own Counsel

It seems like everybody has something to say about how I handle things, what I should do, or how I act. Although I know that they are well-intended, I've got to do what I think is best for me. In the past, I would have taken the opinion of a loved one to heart and tried to make whatever change they suggested. Today, I'm feeling myself a little bit. I know I have plenty of areas that need work but overall I'm good with me.

Even my horoscope agrees:

Making choices about your life based on what you think other people want you to do is not only unhealthy, it's unwise. No one knows what is best for you better than you yourself, so stop listening to the know-it-alls who just love to hear themselves talk. Trust yourself -- even if you make a mistake, it will be one that will teach you an important lesson. It'll also help you avoid that same pitfall next time. Independent thinking is not only healthy -- it is wise!

I have always believed that you must live your own life and make your own mistakes; how else can you build your character and become who you should be?

I have lived my life by your horoscope and some people seem to think that is vain. Living life not really caring what other people think and making decisions based on my own recollections... but I look at it as if there is a chance that I fail at something... I can only blaim myself. Because if I had the option to blaim someone else I may have to cut em...Lol

what did your boy Bilal say??

"The sun in your hands player
Move at your own pace, listen to your own mind
Do your own thing, yeah yeah
I'm saying it because I love ya"

I use to worry about what others thought. Now, I could care less. Trying to please others is more stressful.
If they don't like the way I live, how I raise my children, or cut my grass then move on or don't look.

I use my horoscope as a guideline, for the most part they are really on point, so follow your heart and mind.

It's hard sometimes isn't it? It feels as if we've been trained not to value our own instincts about what's best for us. I still struggle, but I've gotten much better.
