Have you ever decided that you wanted to do something and someone tried to change your mind? Did you ever get offended when they tried changing your mind? Have you allowed their ideas to change your mind or have you stuck to your guns and maybe missed out in allowing them to contribute to you?
Have you ever wished you had let others help but you were too attached to being right, being angry. You even believed you had the right to be angry because they were jerks with you before?
Were they really jerks? Maybe your preconceived ideas stopped you allowing people to love you and contribute to you the way they wanted to express their love?
