Life is a constant evolution of whom we are to what we’ll become. Sometimes the changes are guided by what we want and then others by what we are meant to be. The journey could be painful or pleasant, it all depends on the dispossition in which it encounters our interior self.

As we learn and grow from our experiences and most of all learn with the constant changes in our life we become stronger individuals. It is not an easy time for anyone while they are going through the process because it takes time to assimilate that which hit us on the face making us realise that we need to do something different.

Learning to accept the reality that we are fragile even though we want to believe we are strong, that nothing can touch and change who we are, that we should take a different approach to the situation in order to achieve our goals.

Our past experiences play a huge role on the way we perceive who we are and our worth. They way we impact others in our life is the measurement of whom we believe to be at times, but that is not an accurate way of doing so. We can’t control the many factors involved with each individual and especially their state of mind at the time of our interaction with them. To measure ourself according to others preception is the wrong thing to do in most cases. It is by our intention and how faithfully we’ve been to that ideal which measures who we are. Even though we would like a favorable reaction we don’t always get it. We can’t be changing our ways in order to please or to gain anyone’s acceptance because by doing so we betray ourselves and become enslaved. Remaining faithful to who we are will eventually draw the right people and situations into our life.
