Pressured

I have a question for yall.  Do you all feel pressured in life sometimes?
 
Not necessarily by your immediate family but by other folks?
 
And maybe you all are like me but when someone tells me to do something over and over, I want to do the exact opposite.  Or not do it at all. 
 
Maybe it's just me but I'm a lot more effective when people don't force me to do something.  I was fortunate that my parents never told me how to do stuff, they let me figure it out on my own.  And I'm better now because of that.  Don't get me wrong, they were strict, but I was able to sort my own way through life. 
 
And I do well with a schedule and I'm a creature of habit but I also have a really ridiculous schedule.  Yes, I probably bring a lot of that on myself, but I don't work 40 hour work weeks.  I don't leave my house at 8am every morning.  I don't get home at 5:30 every day.  Ha, I wish, that'd be amazing!  And my family and friends are a priority because without them, I'm nothing.  Exercise too, obviously important. 
 
But anyway, I just like figuring out things myself.  And going about our lives how Kevin and I want to.  Some things that may be priority to me or us aren't to you.  Things that are priority to you, may not be to me. 
 
And guess what?!  That is okay!  We are all different.  And we should all be able to make our own decisions and not be forced into something. 

Y'all feel the same way?!

Yes, feel that way a lot! With work and life in general!

I agree 100%--the more people tell me to do things, the more I want to do the opposite!

I find the greatest pressure I feel is self-imposed - I'm my biggest fan but also my biggest critic. I've worked a lot to be kinder to myself and have come a long way, but sometimes need to take a breather, look myself in the mirror, and say "Give yourself a break!"

Yes, sometimes you just have to sit back and realize that you are who you are and it doesn't matter what other people say or think.

I agree with Blairs Head Band for sure. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves. You do what works best for you, Kevin and Mills and as hard as it will be try to forget what others want to pressure you to do. Can't wait to see you!
