I still ‘work’ on getting my self back. No more following the flow, no more looking for acceptance. I get my life back. I make my own choices, I take my own decisions. And what I make with it is up to me.
It’s not that easy to be truly yourself. It’s not that easy to exonerate yourself from what people may think or not. It’s even harder to really thing and feel that what other people may think about you is not your business. They have THEIR vision, THEIR opinion, THEIR feelings, THEIR thoughts. And none of them are YOUR problem. Just be yourself, and enjoy your life. Make it something you can be proud of, make it something beautiful. This is your responsability.
So in fact it’s a shift in the way we consider our life. From looking for acceptance from others, to looking for acceptance from yourself. And it’s far easier, in fact. Far richer too.
Voltaire, a french philosopher wrote » you must cultivate your garden ». And that’s what I aim to do: cultivate my self as I would cultivate a garden, taking care of each parcel of my soul. Growing. Being beautiful.
