Suddenly, the term Free to Be Me, keeps resonating in my mind when I wake up in the morning, in the middle of the day & before I go to bed at night. After, reflecting on it for awhile, I would have to honestly say this is where I am at this point in my life.
In the past, It bothered me what others thought or felt about me. Especially, when it came to making important decisions, speaking up when others were silent or even when I would not support the popular vote . Now,
I am Free to Be Me!!
Before making any type of decisions that affected other people or myself, I would consult others to get their point of view. What they thought? & How they felt about It. If they did not agree, I would not go forward with the decision.
First, I would try to persuade them & if that was not possible, I would shut down and place them on a distant friendship list.
Now, that I have become older, mother of three kids, married to a wonderful husband, after experiencing many storms, rains & hurricanes, I can care less what & how other people think or feel about me. Now, I can Honestly say, I am Free to Be Me!!
1-You cannot please Everyone
2-Respect other people’s Opinion
3-It Is alright to make an Unpopular Decision
