It is far better to struggle trying to be who you truly are than to struggle to be what others want you to be. The latter will fail you and you will never be good enough, you will never be able to be what and who every other person who has an opinion about you wants you to be. So it’s better not to try. The former, however, is a much better and greater cause. Strive to be the you that you love. Focus on being and becoming the person with the traits and attributes you can acquire along with the many wonderful traits and attributes you already have.
You are you. And you are perfect the way you are. At the same time, there is always something that we can work on and better in ourselves; which is a good thing because that keeps us moving, alert, intelligent, always learning, and improving. The only person we should focus on being better than is the person we were yesterday. We will do better on certain days and worse on others, but that is the way of this lovely life, so don’t worry about those off days, you’re good.
I think it’s important to remind ourselves that we are all in the same boat. We are born, we live, we die. We come into this world with no physical possessions and we leave the same way. Some lives are longer, some shorter, but we all go through life just the same. We don’t have to go through life alone. We must learn to help each other, stand up for one another, have each others backs, because in the end we are all we have, so let’s enjoy our beautiful family. There are 7 billion of us, no one should have to suffer or celebrate by themselves. We are one, giant, humungus unit filled with animals, plants, water, trees, humans, rocks, dirt, the sky, the moon, the sun, outer space, etc. We are one single unit that lives, breathes, and moves together. Embrace the infinite light and love that is you, the infinite light and love that is your fellow man, the Earth, the animals. Embrace the infinite light and love that is all.
Love those around you.
