I LOVE WHO I AM RIGHT NOW, AND EVEN MORE, WHO I'M BECOMING!
Can you say this with complete confidence and honesty? Coz that's what life really is all about... About loving yourself and realising your potential and actual self.
I'm not perfect, far from it. But I am living my life and all my values, even if they may not be the same as what other people appreciate or pursue.
I see so many people saying, "I like this, or I don't like that, but I can't help it"... And I think there's something fundamentally wrong with our awareness. Anything that matters to us, we will do. Even if it means upsetting those closest to us, even the ones we love. And that truly defines us. Our choices. Our priorities. No choice is also a choice.
We have one life. And we should know by a certain age what matters. And then if we don't, we're either lying or we're too scared to acknowledge the truth. And either way, it's a life wasted. For us, but more for other people that surround us. We're doing a disservice to ourselves and others. Family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances. I respect people who make a choice, even if it's not what is socially acceptable. No, you don't need everybody's approval or appreciation. If you can justify what you want and feel, that's adequate. And others will understand. But lying, hiding, manipulating.... Now that's unforgivable.
Who are you, when you are you?
