If you find yourself in a dead end of sorts right now, you probably got there because you were led along by others. This is a powerful lesson -- you need to be in control of where you go in your life. Your preferences and goals, not the wishes of others, should dictate what you do. It's time to reassert yourself, which is what one of your wisest friends has been telling you for a while. Call this friend and ask them for more advice. They know what they're talking about.
