Who are you responsible for? Most adult women don’t know the answer to this question. They think they do, but they are taking care of everyone else around them, not taking care of themselves, and then resenting someone else for the state of their lives. Plenty of men are doing the same things and talking about how they can’t ever get out of a job they hate.
If you’re going to have a goal, you are the only one who can truly make that happen for yourself. You are even responsible for who and how you ask for help. But that’s help, not take over and make my dreams happen for me.
Prince or Princess Charming is not coming to make your better life appear. You will have to take the responsibility for yourself and start letting a few other people’s needs slide. That’s right, you need to get a lot less responsible. Go nuts, let the dishes sit, mow the lawn after you’ve written your bucket list, let the other people in your life have the control.
Yes, control. You need to control you, and let other people get into their own trouble or success as the captains of their own ships. I’m not saying let your 3yr old make major life decisions. But you’re teens could definitely do their own laundry. And if they mess that up, let it be a learning experience.
Never be so dependable that you never get a chance at your own dreams.
Be less responsible, go play, go dream, let everyone else pick up the slack for once while you make something happen for yourself.
