Sometimes there are points in our lives when we come to a discovery of ourselves. We find ourselves seemingly for the first time. Sure we’ve always known who we were, but not really. We’ve seen it through jaded eyes, through the lens of others expectations.
We have this tendency in life to think that if someone else doesn’t pursue the career choice that we deem best, then they are going about it wrong.
Or if they are raising their kids different than us then they are in the wrong.
Or if they are pursuing a relationship that we disagree with they are headed for trouble.
All this is just us being insecure and feeling we need to validate the way we live by invalidating other people.
Each of us as individuals is unique, none of us have the same exact personalities, dreams, or passions, and we shouldn’t.
Encourage others to go after things that are way different than how you would do it. We need more creative people, more diverse actions.
Don’t live a lie because someone else thinks you should do plan A or B. And don’t make people feel that they have to live a lie because you think differently.
We are meant to build each other up. Let’s start today.
