We’re used to waiting, pausing, letting others go ahead of us. It was fine, because it seemed like the right, kind, courteous thing to do.
While letting others go first can be an act of generosity, it can also be a method of hiding and excuse.
When it’s finally our turn, it means it’s our chance to take a leap of faith in ourselves. With nobody else in front to show you the footing or the next steps, perhaps it’s your turn to be the guide.
What’s true and what isn’t?
There are many things that people can believe in. What they believe in, what they hear, who they trust, what their family says, all shapes the way we view the world around us and ourselves.
Whether its a job, a tight deadline, or a family commitment, we are constantly asked to pick and choose between other people or ourselves.
If you choose to let others pick the decisions for you, you might not be so happy when they drop your ball.
On the other hand, picking yourself always puts the control back into your hands.
Your autonomy, your self-happiness.
