What to do when people “should” all over you

The next time some one tells you what you “should” do, take a step back and ask yourself, “What do I ‘choose’ to do?” When people tell you what you should do, they’re usually coming from a loving place and are genuinely trying to help you, but that doesn’t mean they know you better than you know yourself!

Empowering questions:

How could you respond in an empowered manner to a loved one who is telling you what you should do? How could you respond in a disempowering manner? Imagine how you would feel saying either response. Imagine how the other person would feel hearing either response. Which response will you choose? Remember that we can respond in more ways than one, so imagine as many responses as is helpful and trust yourself to choose what works the best for you!

Keeping calm is an important first step to an empowered response! Let me know how it goes, and if you have any questions at all!

Ever after in faith of ourselves,
