Everything For Everyone Else

I got good grades in school to make my parents happy. I moved 2000 miles from home to help out my sister. I worked in a nursing home to help others and help pay my sister's rent. I went away to college because my parents wanted me to. I chose a college because I thought it would make my pastor happy.

Then one day out of the blue I woke up. I realized that I have no idea who I am or what I want in life. I left school and met a wonderful man, I married him and we started a family. Everyday I am told by my parents I made the wrong choice. Now things around me are falling apart and I wonder if by being selfish I made a mistake.

Everything I have ever done was to please someone else, with only one exception and not that is disintergrating. I really am stressed and lost. I again don't know who I am. I know what I want, but I have no idea how to achieve it.
