February 27, 2011


Do you ever feel like everyone around you is trying to tell you how to live your life? Do you find people saying to you, "I am not trying to tell you what to do, but this is what I would do"? These people may mean well providing you with information on how they would accomplish a goal; however, their decision may not be good for your life. Set your own standards in life and live by your own rules!

My mother has been a burr in my side most of my life concerning this matter. She always wants everyone to do things according to how she would handle the situation, and sometimes, that just does not work. You are the creator of your own life, so only you know what is good or bad for you. Try not to get too influenced by what other people have to say. Sometimes, we need other people's advice on how to get a task accomplished, but if you find people offering advice when you never asked for advice it is pretty safe to say that person is trying to control your life. There are times when we do not need another person's advice, because we already know how we are going to solve an issue.

Set your own standards in life! Live by your own rules in life! Never live under another person's microscope of how they feel you should live your life. That, my friend, is called control. That person is trying to control your life, and if you are a grown adult, you have the power of making your own decisions in your own life. Live by your own standards and rules!
