I should all over myself. A lot.
On a daily basis, I usually think one of the following…I should drink less sweet tea. I should work out more. I should spend more time in prayer.
Sometimes I “should” my feelings. I try to convince myself that I should feel a certain way about something… even when I don’t.
On a grander scale, I often “should” my life. I often think thoughts like, “I should be married by now.” “I should be having kids by now (since thanks to facebook I now know that seemingly all of my classmates have multiple children).” “I should look into buying a house instead of throwing away rent money.”
I should. I should. I should.
Maybe I need to stop should-ing and start living.
