Hey you. Yes, you. The person who is so eager to prove everyone wrong with his comments. The one who is wasting their time trying to justify their actions to other people. I am talking to you.
What are you doing? Why are you so obsessed with being accepted by all?
Is that all there really is to life?
I don’t think so.
You see, you might be overwhelmed with rage because some person out there questioned your values and made you feel like a nobody. But here’s the thing. There are a few important things in life that actually deserve our full attention and engagement. This is not it. You are wasting your energy and your power on nothing. You are giving away a piece of your heart for nothing.
To be honest, there was a time when I was the exact same person you are today. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve understood that my happiness lies within me. After many years of convincing the world who I am and confronting the ones who didn’t want to accept my beliefs, I’ve realized that this life is too short for responding to things that are simply not worthy of my time and energy.
After many struggles and battles, I’ve come to the conclusion that the happiest people on earth are the ones who focus their energy on things that make their soul flourish. Not on what people think about them, not on what the world has against them. Only on accepting themselves just the way they are.
So, hear me out.
You don’t need to justify your actions to everyone.
You don’t need to have a perfect response for everything.
You don’t need to judge another person and make comments about what they are doing with their life.
You don’t need to get back at someone just because they hurt you in the worst possible way. Continuing the cycle is just bad karma.
You don’t need to get all frustrated and feisty whenever someone disagrees with your opinion.
You don’t need to express your utter disappointment and anger about something that you genuinely hate.
You don’t need to seek revenge when someone does you wrong.
You don’t need to explain yourself to everyone all of the time. What you do is your own decision. The only person who will suffer the consequences is you.
You don’t need to spend your whole week crying about people who didn’t show up for you when you needed them the most. Take that as a sign that you need to move on.
I feel responsible to share this message with you. That is why I am here to remind you that you need to let go of this if you want to find your happiness. Try to understand that your true power and love for yourself will never be a result of the battle that you fight with others to defend who you are. They can only be found by achieving an absolute peace of mind.
Let go of everything that takes away your energy and be the person you were always destined to be. Embrace your individuality, your imperfections and be the person who creates beauty in their own unique way. Find your peace and in it seek out your true power.
