Often we look to others for approval, for permission. It is a way of ‘passing the buck’ and negating making a decision ourselves. It’s all part of the procrastination process coupled with the fear of offending others or not living up to expectations.
The fact is, it is entirely our freedom and what we allow is what we allow. We do not need permission or approval for anything we choose to do. Our choices will have a consequence and an outcome.
But life is all about what we allow to happen in our lives.
