"Let's Talk"

I need change!

What do you do if you want to do something different in life, but you have to consider others such as a husband, or a child or teenager? How do you follow your heart when everyone else is depending on you to be there for them? My suggestion is much prayer because you have to know what you want is going to work out for everyone. I don't believe you should completely sacrifice your whole life and never do something you really want to do for yourself. When you decide to neglect what you need you start to feel like you are being held captive. You have to share with those involved your desires, don't be afraid because it is a possibility the change might be like a breath of fresh air for everyone.Take a risk and be open with what you want and need.

I think that we as women have a tendency to be less than honest with others as well as themselves. My question would be, how is it that one would allow others to determine their destiny? What one can do if he or she is in this situation, is to determine what they want because just because the person wants to have a change in their life, if he or she is not clear one can be in a worst situation then the present time. If we are Christians, then we should only follow where the Holy Spirit will lead, I guess that takes me back to the scripture, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all else will be added unto me." That is All Else. hopefully,this will shed some light on this dilemma.

You know Dianna, I don't think the situation is about allowing other to control your destiny I think it more about caring. We have so many ties to other people that we love, that I think it is just hard to find the strength to move, but that isn't to say it isn't possible. I do agree with what you said at the end of your comment that we have to seek God because he is truly the only one who knows our future and the paths we are suppose to travel. I also believe in the first comment that we have to find the strength to look beyond our current circumstance because it is possible that where the heart is leading is better than where you are.

Hi Lynn, First I would like to say thank you for commenting on my response, however, I do believe that the situation fosters a sense of allowing others to dictate or control your destiny while caring is still a dichotomous facet. This sense of allowing family to control our destiny resonates from not effectively communicating processes and goals. Hence tying back into the original question, you must have balance. Balance is key when toggling home [family] and securing ambitions. This balance is defined by the facet of caring, communication, and above all understanding. The ties we have with the people we love links communication, understanding and caring together which gives us the strength to move. The strength is not hard to find it is already within us which in fact makes it very possible to move. Often times we fail to effectively communicate our ambitions and processes to the family and this potentially leads to a disconnection with the family. The caring sanctions us to understand and recognize each others needs and wants while bridging the gap to accommodating the needs and wants. When understanding is acknowledged many things fall in place. Lastly, above all God must be sought first.
