Doing what’s right for you can be a difficult decision to make when you have a head full of shoulds and you’re used to putting other people and their opinions before your own – like me.
Many of us, women especially (I have to tell a lot of mothers off for this when they come to me for readings!) are very bad at putting ourselves first or doing what’s right for us. Too busy fulfilling the role of dutiful wife, daughter or mother we do what we think we should rather than what’s right for us.
Sometimes you may have some really hard choices to make in life, but if there’s something you really need to do for yourself, for you, for your self development or for your higher purpose, then do it. You have to live your truth.
Even if it seems like everybody else in the world is telling you it’s wrong, stupid, selfish or any other reason, that still doesn’t matter one jot if you know in your heart that it’s the right thing for you.
You are a spiritual being having a human experience, and you came here to follow your own path not anybody else’s. Even if it seems like you’re making a huge mistake, it’s still your choice to do what’s right for you. You never know, it may turn out to be the best thing you ever did!
I remember staying in a job I hated for almost 3 years because I was under pressure from a partner who told me I should stay there even though I knew it wasn’t right for me and I was desperately unhappy and dying to leave.
Shortly after the relationship ended, I found myself in an appraisal meeting with my manager. I idly looked out of the 5th floor window at a beautiful November sunrise and realised that there was no reason why I still needed to be there.
“I don’t have to be here!”
The words rang out in my head and I started grinning, unable to stop. I handed in my notice the very next day and never looked back. I had no job to go to, and colleagues and family warned me that it was “the wrong thing to do” but I just knew that it was right for me.
I left with no job lined up to go to, 2 weeks before Christmas. I’ll admit that it was a nerve wracking few weeks, but I quickly found a much better and happier job for myself, with a hefty pay rise to boot, and ultimately I was the envy of my former colleagues.
Most people around me were surprised, but not me. I knew in my heart and soul that I was doing the right thing, and that everything would be alright, despite appearances to the contrary!
So please remember, you have to do what’s right for you, and ultimately that will be what’s right for everybody else too. They just might not see it that way yet, so you have to take the lead and live your authentic life.
