Who Knows Best: Decisions, Decisions

Mind blown, decisions, decision making, www.CarlyKnapp.com

Some of us will face a decision in life— to do what our loved ones would like or go our own way… which is towards a place our family and friends have probably never even heard of and probably could care less about.

This is one of those formative decisions— A decision which has the potential to truly change you.

It could be in terms of location, marriage, work or life path. Our families, friends or partners see one route as the most desirable and obvious choice but we see light shining on a different path. We may try to ignore it at first, try to float the mainstream but that light just shines so damn bright that we cannot ignore it. We cannot ignore the path.

Do you

A. Choose the location, partner, career or life path that your family and friends think is a good fit for you
OR

B. Choose the location, partner, career or life path that you think you want, for right now (as in your still aren’t 100% sure)

Sometimes we know best. Sometimes they know best. It’s a gamble, as is every significant life choice. If you ever find yourself faced with this decision, ask yourself, who knows you best, you or them?

This may seem like an obvious answer but it isn’t always the case. Sometimes we need the people in our lives who know us best to help us see clearly. We can get caught up in dreams, visions or fads and they can see the big picture.

Other times, we are the only ones that can see the big picture.

You don’t have to rely solely on yourself or rely solely on someone else. Ask yourself, in THIS situation, who knows best?
