Bonus Episode

Other People's Opinions 

Do other people's opinions influence the way you live your life?


On this bonus episode, I talk a little bit about how hard it can be to ignore those unwanted opinions and focus on yourself.  A lot of times, these negative opinions are unsolicited, and give us no real value.  

Sometimes we need advice from our friends and our family, and on this episode I talk about balancing the advice you get with what you feel in your heart.  Before I quit drinking, I asked my husband what he thought.  He believed that I didn’t have a problem and there was no reason for me to stop drinking, and although I love him, I ignored his advice and got sober anyway.  Learning how to trust your own instincts and do what is right for you can change your life; it did for me. 


When we let other people's opinions drown out our own, what kind of life are we living?
