I have a confession.

I’m a ‘Should-er’.

So what is should-ing?

  • Using the word ‘should’ in your head or out loud.
  • Making decisions based on what you ‘should’ do.
  • Trying to please others based on that ‘should-ing’ voice in your head.

Here are some examples…

  • I should go to that birthday party.
  • I should clean up the house.
  • I should be more outgoing.
  • I should learn about world history,
  • I should care about…
  • I should phone such and such.
  • I should make more of an effort with …
  • I should work harder.
  • I should get up earlier.
  • I should go to bed earlier.
  • I should clean the fridge.
  • I should look at my budget….

Have you been ‘Should-ing’ lately?

If you are having trouble with the SHOULD-ING, ask yourself this:

  • Does your pet use the word ‘should’?
  • Do you think a wild elephant uses the word should?
  • Does a dolphin using the word should?

And if you are having trouble with this concept, ask yourself this question.

  • Does a CAT use the word should?

I don’t think so.

We can learn from the animals.

Start living and making decisions based on:

What you WANT to do.

What you feel called to do.

By ‘should-ing’ – we are not being our authentic selves.

We are hiding behind a mask of what we ‘think’ we should be.

Try and NOT use the word SHOULD.

Try and NOT make decisions based on it.

Ban it!
