Don’t make yourself a mouse or the cat will eat you. A.B. Cheales

Relinquishing your free will to another will take away your individuality. Each of us is different. What one person thinks is great, others may think unimportant. Have you been living your life through the eyes and mind of someone else? Can happiness be obtained by ignoring your needs to satisfy others? Is it possible to make everyone else happy? Experience has taught us that no matter how hard we work, how much we do, how great the sacrifice, we cannot please everyone. So why do we try? Perhaps it is because we feel less important. We are the one who will establish the attitudes of others toward us. If we teach people that we can be ignored, then they will ignore us. You are the only one who can decide if you are going to be a mouse or a cat the rest of your life. You have the ability, you just have to realize that your needs are as important as anyone else’s.
