We all have family members, friends, and/or associates who will always give you their opinion concerning YOUR life. How much do we let the opinion of others influence us? When did we stop doing what makes US happy because we are so afraid of what someone else will say? Why do we base our life on what others think we should or shouldn't do. Its even to the point where we date people based on our homeboys/ girlfriends approval. If our friends don't think that person is acceptable enough, then we don't think they are acceptable. From career choices to where will live........ Why do our friends' opinions carry so much weight?
You may not have even noticed how much you become influenced by others. Have you changed a decision because of a friends' opinion? How did that change affect your life? Would you have been happier if you had went with your first thought before consulting with others? And most importantly....How do you know that your friends or whoever you confide in have your best interest at heart?
