1.In most, if not all, things, you probably have a "gut" sense of what is the right thing to do. You will probably be most satisfied with your life if you act on that sense.
2.If you live your life the way one or more people want you to live it, you will not probably not be satisfied. It's your life, not theirs. If you don't do what they want, they'll eventually get over it and you will be happier.
