Are you acting out of a sense of obligation or duty? Do it with open eyes.

When I examine the “why” behind my actions, and I discover that I’m doing something I dislike out of a sense of duty or obligation, it’s time to raise the alarm.

Am I at choice in this?

What is the consequence of not doing it?

Doing anything because “I’m supposed to” or to avoid guilt and/or shame might mean that I’m not valuing my own needs. Is somebody else’s well-being worth the subjugation of my own?
