I feel like I don’t have much to say today, or more accurately, the things that I would like to talk about I can’t right now.  So as I sit here on my bed this morning, I am struggling with the right words to say.  I guess something that would be relevant would be to talk about my own intuition, or going with my gut.  I have been really trying to pay attention to what I want, the best direction to go in for me.  I think that sometimes I take into consideration other people’s hopes when trying to figure out my own.  I am naturally a people pleaser, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but when it comes at the cost of myself then I think I’ve taken it too far.

I wonder if other people struggle with these same issues in their own lives?  Seeking approval from other people to validate your happiness is a tricky wire to try to cross. On some level, it is important to please others… in fact, it is necessary in a lot of cases.  But how do you keep that instant gratification in-check?  When does it cross the line over into dependence?  That’s what I need to figure out for myself.
