In this video I am talking to a crowd of students who are about to head off to college for the first time, but what you’re about to hear can apply to everyone.

I asked a simple question, “What are some excuses that are holding you back?” One student responded: WORRYING ABOUT SATISFYING OTHER PEOPLE.

What he meant was worrying about what my parents will think about my choices. I can tell you from two sides of the college experience (a student and now a mom of three students) what the secret to getting over pleasing everyone else is: Instead of looking for the constant approval, aim to genuinely and authentically connect.

If you are struggling, be honest and communicate it to your parents in a ways that helps them understand what you’re going through instead of trying to appease them. If you feel lonely or unsure, tell the truth. The reality it, parents and people who truly care about you aren’t looking for perfection, they are looking for connection.

Watch the video and let me know how you are letting the approval of others stop you from living a full life.
