Don’t lie to yourself

We all want something – many things actually. But usually we end up denying our desires for what we want because we either think it makes us selfish, or other people tell us it’s impossible to get/do, or no one you know has ever gotten/done it before.

In the same breath we also tell ourselves that we want things that we really don’t – like working in an unfulfilling job or doing an activity you’re really not interested in.

Be honest with yourself and start communicating honestly with the people around you. That’s the only way you can start setting reasonable boundaries and expectations. And that’s also the only way you’ll truly feel comfortable walking away from things you know you don’t want.
