As crazy as it may seem, most of us are not who we think we are. We tend to become someone else’s ideas. We are born original but conform to become a copy of someone or something else. Cultural conditioning forces us to think in a certain way and to agree to something that is expected of us. Our identities are extremely distorted and misleading by yesterday’s trauma and tomorrow’s expectations.
The struggle to dig deep to find your true, authentic self from beneath the heaps of conditioning and ridiculous expectation is the larger-than-life struggle of your lifetime. Most people are buried alive in a cultural and household flood from the moment they are born, and are never seen or heard from again. Your sole purpose in life is to be who you were intended to be. Nothing is more miserable than living a subdued existence of not been real. Lots of our pain in life comes from suppressing your true identity. You must begin to understand that this is your life; no one else’s!
This is your precious, wonderful, unique and brief moment in life! Please, I beg you, to at least be honest with yourself and be who you are. If you can’t be who you really are then what is life but an unbearable lie? It is essential that you follow your own idea of passion, even if to others it looks like suffering. Refuse to be pressured. Resist to just conform and declare that you are alive; you are you and you are unmistakable and beautiful in this world.
