I grew up thinking I needed to always be this perfect individual and if I was not life would be miserable, full of sadness, disappointment, etc.! This was how I felt most of my life! What is living a perfect life supposed to look like?
I read a book a new friend recommended to me back in April of 2016 ‘The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom’ which helped me understand more of what I was going through, especially about my thoughts and how I was living my life! I recommend this book as it has amazing insights! It opened my mind and it definitely helped me on my journey! All four agreements are amazing but I will share two of them which really hit home and opened my mind to break free and really start living life!
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
For as long as I can remember I took everything personally and always made assumptions! As for taking things personally, I would blame myself for every little thing that went wrong, even if I had nothing to do with it! How is that possible you ask? My mind found ways… let’s say I was in a room and an individual tripped, I was to blame for this because had I not been there they could’ve possibly walked a different route to avoid tripping even if they were never near me! Now as for making assumptions this would require writing a novel to explain everything… I’ll say for now I was the king of imagining how things would go or possibly go not to mention fantasizing things up into existence!
With all this said, let us be like a sunflower, simply being itself and always looking towards the light! Be at peace within yourself to live an amazing life!
Doing your best is being perfect!
