The pressure in our LOVELY society to “be a certain way” has never been higher.
With all the talk about “being you” that is going on…there sure seems to be a lot of criticism out there when you step out to be “you” doesn’t there?
So forget it.
Anyway… Have you ever REALLY thought about whose life you are even living?
All day long…our entire lives… are bombarded by the expectations AND LIMITS of our surrounding influences.
Did you realise that before?
Everyone has ideas for us.
Everyone thinks they know what’s best for us…
But… did you ever notice that those ideas and all expectations that are “BEST for us” are so similar to the lives of the ones giving us this advice?
What about the life YOU want?
What about your dreams?
What about that vision of yourself you think about before you fall asleep at night that you’re too afraid to tell anyone about?
Don’t play. I know you have one.
Most people put more thought into what they are going to do this Friday night than where they are going to be 5 years from now…and THAT my friends…is how you waste your LIFE!
Society has groomed us to be so terrified that others won’t approve or believe in our dreams/goals that we don’t even fucking TRY. It must change, guys!
I hate to break it to you, but if you don’t even have enough balls to say what you really want for fear of others disapproval…your chances of making anything great are not existing.
“Doing you” makes other people uncomfortable because they are forced to look in the mirror and judge their own progress.
I don’t know for how long you have been watching me but chances are you know the chaos I made in my content. From being me I went to pretending and doing NICE things. You know it doesn’t lie in my nature… I tried sooo hard, just to recognise it doesn’t make sense to me, to others. Now as you can see I’m coming back on track. It is not easy, but here we go.
The truth is, many people (sometimes the ones closest to you!) are going to always doubt, question and want to see you fail at whatever it is you do.
Everyone who has ever accomplished ANYTHING has dealt with this.
NEVER EVER let them stand in your way.
BE ready to hear their negative comments.
What makes you think you get to skip that uncomfortable part? It will happen.
But do it anyway.
or sit the fuck down and be quiet.
It’s your choice.
