I believe that whatever good deeds I do I'll face criticism from some quarters. And whatever bad deeds I do I'll get some supporters for me. I can't just please everybody. In my pursuance to please all I've displeased all. So now a days when I decide to do anything I simply listen to my conscience. If my conscience permits me to do a thing I do it. If it doesn't permit then I don't do it. I don't care for people or what they might think. While listening to my conscience I have seen that I've refrained from doing unethical, immoral or illegal deeds. Do all of you feel like me or differ? Please come forward and share your views. You all are cordially welcome.

You know you are absolutely right! At one time in my life, I used to do the same thing... try to please everybody. I tried so hard and just ended up exhausted AND frustrated most of the time! No matter how much effort I put into trying to make everyone happy, there has to be somebody who's not happy! It came to a point when I realized I have wasted so many, many years of my life trying to please my own family, my parents, my brothers and sisters, and all the rest of the world. I was so awfully miserable! Until I met my fiance, that was when things changed in my life. He made me realize that the first person who should be happy is myself. So long as anything that I do does not offend or hurt anybody, there is no reason for me to worry about what they think. Like you said, it's all about conscience. If you know it's going to hurt somebody, why do it, right? I am glad to say that I am now happy and content with my life. I am able to make my own decisions without worrying what anybody has to say about it.

Thanks Paulsy. Just splendid. I wonder now how foolish I was when I tried to please everybody and ended up displeasing all. You're lucky to have some one by your side to guide you to the right path. I had to learn it the hard way by trial and error. I feel now much relieved and worry free. I just ignore any criticism which arises from such corners and continue to do what my mind says to me. Thanks again for your valuable time and sharing your invaluable experience.

I think it's great that you don't please anyone, going against your conscience to do so. It's great that you listen to your conscience. I've lost a lot of my "friends" because I wouldn't do things to please them, either because I felt wrong doing so, or I had a bad feeling about doing whatever it was that I was asked to do. It's better to have a clear conscience than to have "friends" who use you for their own selfish reasons.

Yeah Chryssi I agree with you. Its better to live with conscience than with unscrupulous friends. They always insist on doing the deeds which will or at least meant to serve their interests. I've refused to fall prey to their unholy desires. Thanks for your times.
