So many people feel entitlement to tell others how to live, whether or not they have fulfilled those things in their own lives. I would never live to tell somebody else how they should live. I don't find it my place to do such things and it really irritates me that others find it is their duty.
It is even worse when it is a spouse you spend all your time with that is dictating what you do. For certain, a marriage is give and take but to make it even worse, running a business together is even more difficult. My husband started our company before I knew him so he naturally dictates what goes on. I give advice but he has the final word.
When I met my husband, I was 313 and I have followed the health lifestyle with him for over 3 years and am now 202 lbs. I am always posed the question of whether or not I want to have our family. This is an unfair question because being healthy enough and wanting to are completely different things. Although I want a family more than anything, it should not be a reflection of my actions on the road to health. I am so irritated by having it placed on me that I am holding up the couple from having a family. This is my dream to have a family and I am the one holding it up.
I am extremely sensitive to people's criticism and I have done so much work by way of fitness and nutrition. I am stuck at the 3/4 mark of this weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey. I am so done with this!
