Identity crisis is the world’s biggest problem. A lot of persons are lost in this path to self-discovery. People have become square pegs in around holes, trying to fit into descriptions given to them by the society, by friends, by circumstances, by culture etc.
Recently, there have been a lot of fights to be heard, women fighting to be heard, gender fights etc. In a world filled with so much noise and name tags, self-discovery becomes key to a fulfilled life.
So many voices in the world today tell you that there is nothing more than this life, that you’re simply a creation of your biology and culture, that contentment comes only through indulging your desires, appetites, and cravings. However, such voices speak without facts of what was before this life or what comes after. Therefore, they speak without knowledge of who you really are.
Most people spend their lives waiting for fulfillment. They cling to the idea that as soon as they get that job, as soon as they lose those last few pounds, as soon as they’re in a great relationship, then the gates will open and happiness will come rushing on through. Most people are misinformed. True happiness doesn’t come from wealth or beauty or status or anything external, it comes from within.
THE DISTORTIONS WE`VE BEEN FED WITH
STOLEN BY RELATIONSHIPS: There are relationships which are killing us on a daily basis. Such relationships where someone else’s view of us totally eclipses who we really are. A man or woman who totally obliterates his or her true self in other to create an identity acceptable by those who love them. Within there’s this strong desire to break through, but we are held bound by supposed love at the expense of freedom…
SOLUTION: the first relationship on earth was between man and his creator. Look around you, see the lavish of resources bestowed on man at no cost… first note that any relationship that leaves you down, depressed, unhappy isn’t worth keeping. Everything under the sun has its fit. Ask yourself if you fit in, if not walk away. What everyone deserves is unfailing love, love that places no unrealistic demands on your happiness.
It’s really scary, knowing that someone is living your life, calling the shots, you’ve never done the things you want to do, but always what another wants all the time, friend walk away. Live your life like it’s yours. When it comes to friends, quality is always better than quantity. Weed out the negative people in your life who drag you down and spend more time with positive, optimistic people who see the good in you and encourage you to be your best self.
SHUT OUT BY APPEARANCE: Very early in life I was really depressed. I wasn’t as tall as I wanted, people always laughed at me, mocked me. Soon whenever I looked in the mirror ALL I could see was a short guy and nothing else. A friend of mine, whenever we spoke, I was careful to always notice she would always say… ugly me. Soon I realized the mirror has done a great damage.
