I’m always told what to do

told what to do - Therapy in London


Let’s say, you have always dreamt your life would be a certain way. A certain job or lifestyle for example, yet you wake up every morning doing something you don’t enjoy in order to make ends meet.

You may say to someone that something has got to change. Yet you are told that you are greedy for wanting more. You are told to just keep doing your job and be appreciative of what you have already. They shut down your thoughts of the new life you have been searching for.

Where is your voice?

Why do you feel that others feelings are more important than your own?

You are the expert when it comes to your happiness, yet you feel compelled to listen to others in regards to your own happiness! Why do you always dismiss your own needs to fit in with others’ lives?

It sounds odd to think that others are telling you what you want, and what should make you happy in your life.

Now, these people are not being malicious, they are trying to help you. It’s good to listen to others advice in regards to doing something new or ideas to help you towards your goal, bu,t let’s try and cut out the voices of people telling you that what you want is not right.

You have nothing to lose.

Try one new thing this week that you have always wanted to do. It doesn’t need to be a huge life changing event, just something that will bring you a little of happiness.

Listen to your voice.

What do you want to do right now?
