Your emotions are quite strong and are very important to you, but certain tensions within them need resolving. First of all, your needs and feelings may be in conflict with what other people seem to expect of you. And you often feel like going one direction even though you know it would be better to go the opposite.
The problem is, there is no one answer as to which way you should go each time. Your feelings are sometimes more correct than rational judgments, which may be based on ideas learned from others which don’t take your unique situation into account.
You have to live with others, but at the same time you have to be yourself. If reason tells you to go one way and emotion says the opposite, think about your choices carefully. If the 'reasonable' path helps others but offers you very little, then your emotions may be trying to tell you what your real needs are. On the other hand, your feelings may come from old, outdated ideas and silly childish fears, so it's worth keeping them also opening to questioning.
You may be reluctant to face the world of growing up. You often need the advice of a faithful friend, perhaps one of your parents, who can show you which choice is best for you without having a stake in the result. As you get older, you should be able to make these decisions more easily.
Your emotions and ideas about your life should reinforce each other. However, you may need to take your time growing up. As you have farther to go, you may take longer than others.
