Do what makes you happy. It’s quite simple and easy, people have just forgotten how easy it really is. They’re too busy worrying about how other people feel to notice that by making other people feel good, you’re forgetting about yourself. Sometimes a friend might ask you to do something and you really don’t want to do it. It’s best to leave some space before answering the question to give you some thinking time. Then if you still really don’t want to do it, have a loving conversation with your friend explaining that it’s just not in your best interest to do what has been requested. If you friend has a negative reaction, which they might, you have to remember that it’s your friend who is holding “expectation” energy and you have done nothing wrong. It’s your friend who needs to change their perspective. They could have easily accepted this fact and moved on to asking another friend with no harm done. Always remember to check in with yourself to make sure the situation is going to make you happy, if not question the situation, “why am I not happy about this?” The more you discover your own self the better you will know what you should and should not do and this is better for everyone, even if they don’t see it just yet. Remember, you have to be a candle with a bright flame in order to ignite other candles around you.
