They want you to like this and like that, no you should not be doing it like this because this is not the right way. But you say to yourself but what is the right way? Do you ever question why it should be a certain way and not another way? I always think is there only one way to do something, most times there is never one way to do something. But here’s the secret, say you do it their way and you do everything they wanted or so you thought.
The outcome is that it will never be good enough, you will never make them happy because people are fickle I like to say they are extraordinary. People will change their minds without skipping a heartbeat they are amazing because you never know what they are thinking. Let’s say you did everything the way they wanted you to do it, referring to ‘they’ as the messengers of adversity.
What then, do you ask yourself these simple questions?
- Who am I?
- What am I capable of?
- Do I love myself?
- Do I like what I’ve become?
- Do they love me for being me or for being all that ‘they’ wanted me to be?
Be brave and be true yourself do not forget who you are. I repeat do not forget who you are. I understand that you may have lost yourself along the way but that does not mean there is no hope for you. There is always hope, forever be a prisoner of hope no matter the circumstance. Know your worth; know who you are and what you are capable of. You are who you are through life, learnings and experiences.
