Life tends to sway us from side to side, put us down, show us that what we want is not realistic. Society influences us about how we need to live our lives and judges us if we divert from the conventual ways of living. As a result, we prefer to isolate and avoid people that lecture us how we should live our lives
What is the closest thing that you have? What is the one thing that is important to you the most? Do you depend on it? Or perhaps can't be without it? Is it more than one thing? Take a moment to think about the things that are closest to you that you can't be without. Now ask yourself - Do I believe that what I have will always exist there for me or am I worried about what I have disappearing from my life?
Can you define yourself? Should you? The very attempt doing so will always result in looking in our past. Nevertheless, we are continually being asked to describe ourselves at job interviews, social encounters, romantic dates, etc. But what if I don't want to be the result of my past experiences, conclusions, and actions. Who am I then?
Our instincts direct us to search our minds for inspiration. But when our thoughts come up with nothing that leads us to conclude that we've reached the end of the road. The more time we spend being stuck, the more we become convinced in our self-diagnosed problem. But how do we break free from that? How we can detach from this state of being stuck?
At some point or another, we all depend on someone to love us, appreciate us, spend time with us. How else would we know that we are good unless we are judged by someone else's standards? Later adopting these standards as our own and secretly judging ourselves, our past, our future, our present, in our thoughts
What does it mean to be home? What do we consider as a home? Where is home? Some will say - Home is where the heart is. But for most, that's just a metaphorical saying. Being inside owns heart has many interpretations. Our search for a home begins from the moment that we can sense danger, but not necessarily the kind that can physically hurt us.
At one point or another, we are all tricked into following what we fear and not what we want. Only few dare to follow their desires all in without looking back. You can't fake going all the way. Those that try are continuously looking back to check up with their fears. Managing fear is time and emotion consuming. People can't operate being afraid all the time. Fear limits our freedom and creativity. Even those that work the jobs they hate are committed to doing so fearlessly.
