The hard truth is: ‘It is hard for everyone’ – it sounds so, refreshing? That we’re not alone in this big and crazy world. And that our struggles are not in vain.
Yet, just as that feeling of relief comes, or as some would say, just as that feeling of ‘Oh, that’s how everyone has it, that’s how I’ll have it, and that’s that! Why should I change anything?’ – something follows that relief… To me, that statement is like yelling in my face: ”They’re unhappy, why should I be any different? ”
For any of you who’ve read the post ”Acceptance”, let me tell you – this is that ‘wise’ moment we’ve all been waiting for. Don’t let the widely acceptable thing turn out to be acceptable to you, just because it is acceptable for everyone else! You don’t have to live in misery!
As my mentor would say: ”How dare you consciously make a decision to let your life be miserable? Who are you to do such a terrible thing to yourself?”
Dear friends, please, when you see yourself walking the wrong path…Rebel! Rebel to that dying need to accept! Sometimes, we need to make ourselves do the right thing.
As I’ve figured out, there is no ‘Ideal situation’, nor an ‘Ideal way to figure what’s the right path’. But I strongly believe that every single one of us has that basic ‘Right and Wrong’ scale, build up in our mind, and that helps us weight the standards.
I strongly believe that we all know what’s right! 🙂
So, Rebel! Trust me, there is liberation in that as well! 🙂 And isn’t that also refreshing?
Thank you! ❤
I also believe that we’re all different people, with different life experiences – so, as such I would really like to hear your advice to me (and the rest of the community). The idea of this blog is that everyone can be a teacher, and a student. To turn this little space on the internet into a Growing Community. So, what would your advice be on this matter?
Who knows, maybe some (or all) of your comments expand my (or someone else‘s) way of thinking. 🙂 Everything is possible – shall we agree that this, is acceptable! 😀
