Sociologist Charles Horton Cooley once said: “I am not what I think I am, and I am not what you think I am. I am what I think you think I am.”
In other words, our actions are shaped by what we think society, friends, and family expect of us.
But what we “should” be doing blinds us from all the things we could be doing.
If you feel stuck, try changing your perspective from should to could — and see what comes up.
