Hello beautiful bloggers and readers. How’ve you been?
I hope you’re doing okay. If not I hope you find the courage to be okay.
I must admit the rollercoster that I’ve been travelling in hasn’t been very smooth. I think I probably even puked a few times. But then which rollercoster is smooth?
This last month I’ve been thinking of how important it is to know who you are and who you want to be.
Then I realised how easily we’re influenced by the norms of social media. How easily we let people define us. What angers me most is how we just casually let ourselves fit in with the people around us without really knowing who we are.
For example, Posts say “It’s okay not to know where you’re going in life” and then some people who actually have a goal, a plan, say “That’s true” and just give up. JUST GIVE UP.
No! If you’re a person with a dream or goal you sit down there and get your ass working.
There’s a group of people there. They look cool. Let me hang out with them. And boom before you know it you’re one of them. (Not necessarily in the negative sense) Maybe that’s why they say “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are”
Maybe that’s why people get along more in college, you know who you are and the kind of people you want to be with. And all is right again. (Well not literally)
And that comes back to the point dear friends, if you don’t know who you are or who you want to be or where you want to go or what you want to do, you have no purpose.
Now all this might sound a little (lot?) clichèd to you. And you probably heard it time and again but. But. “The more you know who you are and where you wanna go, the less you let things affect you”. -Stephanie Perkins.
Know yourself but explore your options. Better yourself.
Know the kind of people you want around you but learn from everyone you meet.
Stay true to yourself.
Here’s a video that inspired me,I request you to watch it. I promise it won’t be a waste of time. 🙂
