nice it is to have someone else traveling on the same road
that we're on! How nice it is to have company!
But how deceptive it is, too, to have other people tell us

must all walk our own paths--but only if we want to find
our own ways and live our own lives in the most authentic
ways that we can. Following someone else's path
never will get us where we want and need to be, simply
because other people have different callings, different
needs, different strengths and weaknesses, and when we try
to walk with them in their direction, we find that our own
strengths aren't necessarily appropriate in the places
where we find ourselves.
easy for others to criticize us and say that we're going
in the wrong direction and doing the wrong types of
things. Usually when we're truly on our own paths,
it's difficult for others to understand where we are or
our need to be there. It's up to us to develop the
strength to resist the temptation to join others just
because it's the easiest thing to do--after all, our
journeys here on earth aren't necessarily about finding
the easiest ways out of things.
the path you are on is your own, then celebrate!
Love the path and love the journey, and don't allow anyone
else to turn you from the path that you know you need to
be on if you're to become the person you're meant to be
while here on this great planet of ours.
