everyone's life is driven by something. right now u may be driven by a prob, pressure, or a deadline. u may be driven by a painful memory, a haunting fear, or an unconscious belief....me, im driven by the need of approval. i allow the expectations of parents or teachers or friends to control my life. i m controlled by the opinions of others.there are hundreds of circumstances, values, and emotions taht can drive ur life, so what is it?!..

You are quite right .. every one is driven by something or the other .. in my case my love for my hubby and daughter is one strong driving force in my life .. apart from that I m inclined to aspire my creative potentials for which I am striving hard to work in creative fields like web designing. Family responsibilities are there too that contribute to my life in a big way ..

I never allow anyone to drive my life. If I'm driven by anything, it's my children. They keep me going each and every day, but I don't ever let my boyfriend, parents or friends drive my life. That is more like peer pressure.

Good Discussion! I would have to say that family is the number one driving force in my life. Not that I am all that worried about their expectations or anything but my family was nearly extinguished by illness and is finally beginning to grow again and, to me, there just isn['t anything more important. Now when I say family I don't just mean the people that are blood relations. I mean the people that are family by their actions as well. Next, I would have to say that I need to do something worthwhile with my life. I am disabled and unable to go back to work in my previous field (working in human services) so now I do a lot of volunteering. I volunteer at my local hospital one or two days a week and I volunteer with the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, amoung other things. And I want very much to open a residential school for teens at risk. I love teenagers and have wanted to do this for several years but have no money to do it. So, I guess that is what drives me. Was this what you had in mind when you posted this? Thanks for the great discussion!
