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.

You know Clary, As I get older, I become more aware of the changes in my life. When I was younger I used to conform to other people, and not really developing myself. I remember that I didn’t like it, but at the time it was more important to belong than to be an outcast. Everything changed last year and now I change pro actively and I am the author of my own life. Thanks for sharing your lovely thoughts. Take care!

I know exactly what you mean. As we get older we learn to create our own rivers and navigate rougher waters if we need to in order to reach our own sea. Conforming ourselves to others can really put a stop into our development if we don’t step in and make a point to respect others but at the same let them know you expect to be respected as an individual as well.
