I often tell women to stop shoulding on themselves. I stole this turn of phrase from my friend Becky and it always makes me giggle when people look at me half disgusted by what they think they might have heard.
Should. Not shit.
But I suggest that shoulding on yourself is just as bad.
What does it mean to should on yourself? It means being guided by what you think you should do instead of what you want to do or what you value.
But don’t all of us – if we want to be responsible adults – have to give in to should now and then?
I don’t think so, and I explain why in this short video.
What do you think?
