“Should”/“Need to”

Good morning Brooke!

I was doing my thought download this morning and came across a few “I need to…” thoughts which I rephrased to “I should…” thoughts because I was trying to pull the feeling out of said thoughts.

Is “should” indulgent? Is it even a feeling? I feel such a negative connotation from it because it’s as if someone is saying something or someone “needs to be” a certain way based on their own thoughts, which I don’t really agree with most of the time.

I hope this makes sense! Thanks for your thoughts about this.
