You need to follow you own path
It can be so easy to be led down a certain path because someone says its such a great opportunity. That you are so lucky because you get to do a certain thing, or be in a certain relationship or work in a certain place. But is that where You really ant to be? While it may look like an opportunity that someone else would jump for, its not necessarily the right one for you
Listen to yourself, after all you're the one you answer to in those quiet moments.
Make it as you wish SSSs!
Post Update: I wrote a blog post for 10thousandgirl that relates to just this, that I posted on SSS.
