Hello everybody. This is the last hurdle you need to jump if you're to make your decision to stay in a radically improved relationship or move on. You must stop trying to live by other people's standards and values and thereby loose yourself and instead live by your own. Only then can you look back on an authentic, fulfilled and happy life.
Chapter 16: HURDLE 6: Live by your own values and standards (not by everyone else’s)
The sixth hurdle is ‘Live by your own values and standards (not by everyone else’s)’. You cannot continue to live your life by trying to live up to other people’s values, standards and expectations. The chapter encourages you to clarify those values you want to live by that will give your life meaning.
Your perfect is not my perfect. Your acceptable way of life may not be mine. By revealing unchallenged assumptions and questioning their validity, chapter 16 will help you to stop self-image actualizing and start self-actualizing; to be more generous with yourself and respond more openly and creatively to your relationship.
