I have made many life decisions that were motivated by trying to please other people … people who ended up not being pleased anyway.
A Dave Ramsey quote comes to mind:
“We buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like.”
Even though I am not speaking specifically about financial decisions, this statement still resonates.
I read a good book that helped me come to terms with things a bit called, “Strip Off Your Fear: Radiate the Confidence Within,” by Betsy Talbot.
Just a suggestion for a good read if you need some Umph to get going and make those daily decisions that will help you live more authentically and happily.
