When Not To Follow

Updated on January 10, 2013

If I Am Sad

Look for a day filled with unlimited happiness

There you will be safe

Follow your heart and do what is right

Don't listen to others when they claim to know it all

Look inside of you and find the little ticker that makes your whole body work

Beating one steady beat

Never dull or bored

Just knowing what to do and how to do it well

People can say what they want

In time few can argue who was right

When you wait for others to prove you wrong

Noone comes and you just walk along

      mary615 To often in my life I have willingly given my trust and faith in other people who claimed to be more experienced and talented.I realized later I would of made a better choice if I only had more self confidence and self pride.I don't mean to say other people aren't helpful in many ways.They should not be taken as fact and should be considered in your ultimate decision.Gypsy Rose Lee Years later I have finally found negative people only bring me down and have an adverse affect on my life.I thought I could always help anyone.To often they don't want to change and some how try to change my mind instead of me changing theirs.I am still not sure why or how.annart Time and time again it rings true.Sometimes we have to learn the hard way.As long as we learn that is what is important.I would like to thank all of you for your wonderful comments and advice.

      Mhatter To often in life we listen and trust to the wrong people and if we only trusted our own instincts we would of been better off.If we make mistakes it was our mistake and we feel so much better.Thanx for reading and sharing.shiningirisheyes Many times we think other people know more than us because they are older,a family member or gone through life and their struggle is our struggle.Not true.We are different than them and times are different now.What applied then might not apply now.What we can do is listen and understand their views so we can ultimately make a better decision.Thanx so much for reading.
