There has been some angst in the house for the past few weeks. I think I know what it is all about … teenagers wanting more independence, marital spats, winter weather keeping us indoors more, stepkids moving in full time, and so on.
But my own internal angst has been a bit harder to define. And then I saw this quote by the actor, Bill Cosby.
“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everyone.”
I have heard this before, but the moment I read it again today, it hit me just how true the saying is. And just how much I’ve been trying to please others while losing sight of what is integral and important to me.
Now there is a solution for my mindset.
I wonder how often this happens to others too?
