Whose idea was it, anyway?

Sometimes we have false goals:

“I should be married with children by the time I’m ____!”
“I have to get my degree,” (even though I don’t really need it to open the flower shop that’s my secret dream).

Are those goals ours, or are they someone else’s goals for us that we are trying to fulfill? How many other things in our lives fall into that category of fulfilling someone else’s wants?

If our life template doesn’t seem to fit, maybe it’s time to check the measurements.
