Why do we feel that we must fit in a neat little box in society? Be the norm… follow procedures from societal pressure… and be who you think you should be. NO!
Be unique. Be an individual. Make your own choices. Be a leader. Have your own thoughts. Individuality is what we all should strive for. Make yourself the person you want to be. Be the person that you want to see in this world making a difference.
Own who you really are.
I was reminded tonight of the pressure that we put on ourselves if we make different choices to others. My friend in her forties felt that she was dragging the chain in the relationship department and family scene. There is no right or wrong in when we choose to settle down, to start a family, to choose a career.
Each of us are different, we have different experiences and opportunities. That is what makes us all interesting. It would be boring if we were all the same. Imagine that… we would have nothing to talk about. Nothing to share. Our perceived imperfections would not be of value.
It is our own mindest that limits our choices and allows us to become our own burden at times. So many of us at some point in our lives, probably many times… feel that we can’t cut it… or we don’t fit in. We need to give ourselves a break and appreciate the special things that are individual to us all.
We must make our own choices that feel right for us. And enjoy life. Seeing yourself through the eyes of your loved one… is a good place to start. That love exists for a reason. The love of a mother or father. The love of a partner or friend. See yourself and your fine qualities through their eyes.
Treat yourself like you would treat your best friend. Love and appreciate why you are different. It is those differences that make you special and will help choose your path in life. Remember there is no right or wrong when or how we do things… if we just be kind to ourselves and respect those around us.
Take care, Karen.
