"Your life is your own." Eleanor Roosevelt
Don't you love being told to get in place?
If your experiences are anything like mine, I'm guessing you've been told to get in place and stay there more than a few times. In fact, chances are pretty good that people have been trying to move you into one place or another most of your life.
Then, to make things a little more fun, the place others deem appropriate for you is rarely a place of your choosing. Or something you'd want to do. Rather, it's the place where they think you should be... doing what they think you should be doing.
You've got to be kidding.
"We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music." Barbara Sher
If anything, you need to get out of place, get out of line, get out from under the control of others. You were not born to be shoe horned into something you're not, or pressured into going places you don't want to go.
Yet many people still allow others to dictate their place in life.
They're told what they're going to do. And they do it. They're told how much they're going to make. And they accept it.
They're told when they can take a break and go on vacation. They're told when they must come to work and when they can go home. They're told when they're going to get a raise (or if they get a raise), and how much the raise will be.
They're told how they will behave. And what they should wear. Some even allow others to tell them what they should say, think and do. And they quietly succumb. And do what they're told.
Sounds a little creepy, a little crazy? Or does it sound eerily familiar?
"Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference." Jane Goodall
When you constantly allow others to call the shots, you lose control of your life. Instead of being yourself, you become what others believe you should be. And start doing what others think you should do.
Afraid of rocking the boat or ruffling some feathers, you meekly fall in line. And do what you're told. And end up settling for whatever crumbs others deem you are worthy of receiving.
Is this what you want? To give others control. To allow others the final say about your life.
I didn't think so.
"There is just one life for each of us: our own." Euripides
You were born to be you; to be yourself, to do your own thing. You need to go find the place that makes you happy; the place where you belong, the place where you can just be yourself.
The place where you can do what you want. The place where you can be what you want. The place where you can thrive. The place where you can meticulously sculpt your life in the precise manner you desire.
The place that's just right for you.
When you stop allowing others to put you in your place, you start breaking away. You start breaking free. And you start being yourself.
And that's the right place to be.
The Bottom Line: Find your 'place' and you'll find happiness.
