Start Being You

Stop trying. Stop trying to be something you aren’t, stop trying to do something you really don’t want, and stop trying to become everyone else but yourself. You are not a human trying, you are a human being, and the sooner you start being, the less time you will waste away hopelessly trying to create a reality that just isn’t real.
Just be you, do you, believe in you, and be real with you. All you have in this life is your very being, and that is a beautiful thing to waste on trying to cover it up with something you’re not. We tend to think we’ll find solace in turning into everything we aren’t, when in reality, genuine solace is found by turning into what we are capable of by being true to who we actually are.
You will always be better at being yourself than trying to be somebody else. You have been given this life with the sole mission of making the most of your reality with every single day you have. But in order to make the most of your reality, you need to be willing to make the most of YOUR reality, not someone else’s. So let go of everything you aren’t, everything you don’t really want, and everyone else you’re trying to be, and grab hold of everything you really are, and everything you really want, and go get everything you’re capable of being.

Mis-Management

When it feels forced. When the harder you try, the worse it works out. When everything you say is misunderstood, and everything you do is misinterpreted. When you start thinking something is just plain wrong with you, and there is no way up and no way out because, really, who would want you anyway? When you start having those feelings, and they start creeping into every aspect of your life, realize that you aren’t a failure, you have simply misapplied your passion into something which is not compatible with what you have to offer, or what you were meant to do.
We get so spun up about what we should do with our lives, we lose sight of what we could do with our lives. We mistake acceptance for success, and chase the accepted instead of the unexpected, one day realizing we have worked ourselves into something we never really wanted but thought we needed, and now we just can’t fake the funk any longer. And that’s okay.
It’s okay to be a misfit. It’s okay to lack acceptance. It’s okay to have gone down the wrong path, and it’s certainly okay to change course in exchange for what you were meant to do. The most successful among us, the truly successful ones, not the most distinguished or most decorated, but the ones who made a life of chasing their dreams, were all once the misfits who were misunderstood and misinterpreted. So make no mistake about it, you may not fit in, but why would you want to anyway?
