I Am Working My Way To This One...

As a pisces I tend to fall into the opinions of others. But as I get older I find myself more and more expressing who I am and not caring what other people think or what they think I should be.

After my seperation and divorce that started in 2008, I relied heavily on my family for support. In turn, they controlled everything. Wanted to always know my business. Always had input on what my next move should be. Critical of everything I said and did as a mother. It wasn't worth the support. I took matters into my own hands and moved out and got my own place. Worked two full time jobs and a part time job which they had no ideal I was working.. And basically little by little started to let my family know, "hey I am in charge of me!"

Well, I can't say that I have stuck to my guns. Hey give me a break...I'm a PISCES. I care what people think and how they feel. I have just learn to not care as much. I am learning to be myself inspite of what others expect me to be. Its a process I will continue to the day I die. Wanting nothing more than the comfort inside that I found myself, my selfworth, and all my potential regardless of what others desired or wanted.

I can relate...I am actually going through a divorce now but have no family or anyone else for support. You are lucky you have family but yes, it is sad that they want to get into your business. I am the type of person who does not want anyone telling me who I need to be or what I need to do. I am my own person. Kudos to you for taking charge and doing what you can to be in control and on your own....relying on and doing for yourself. I, too, have learned to not care as much what other people think of me. I still do though but it helps not to worry as much about it. I just want to be me and want people to respect that.
