What I Want To Do vs. What I Should Do.

Making choices Inner Sanctuary Colchester


Are you challenged by the conflict of what you want to do over what you should do? Is it a difficult decision that brings you down? Do you want to break the cycle? Let me tell you how…

Confronted with a choice of doing what you should do versus what you want to do should be a no-brainer, but for many people it causes torment and anguish as time and time again a lack of confidence and self-worth means they come last.


Relinquishing what would make you happy to do what you feel you should be doing results in frustration, anger, resentment and the feeling that you are leading an unfulfilled life.


But what can you do about it?

You need to embrace mindful thinking, and only act after consideration.


  • • Next time you feel you are faced with this type of challenge ask yourself; do I want to do it or simply feel I should?
  • • If you feel like you are being forced into a “should” situation, consider whether it is a one-off or isolated event, or part of a recognisable pattern.
  • • Ask yourself what really gets in the way of you doing what you want to do.
