Have you ever come up with an idea and thought what a wonderfully awesome idea! Only to run it by your compadres, and get the wind knocked out of your sails? Do you have any comrades? Lets take a look at what it takes to be secure in yourself!

It's always a good thing to value the thoughts and ideas of others, but when it comes down to the "Nitty Gritty" it is important to follow who you are.
Soon after my wife and I were married we were discussing her finishing nursing school. She started at a University in East Texas, but now that we were married we lived near Houston. She could finish up at the local community college, or return to East Texas and finish in the same amount of time with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing not just her RN. Texas is big it was 4 hours away from the support of family. We would be on our own. We talked it over with both her family and mine. Neither side thought it was a good idea. We told everyone that we appreciated their counsel, but we would be making the trek to East Texas. Both sides said it wouldn't last, and we would fall on our face's. We made them eat crow at her graduation party!
Not every decision you make will bring glad tidings. You have to have some form of being secure in yourself to allow you to make your decisions in the first place.
Follow yourself and you'll never be lost...
You might go in circles from time to time, but at least you'll manage to be yourself!
