“You are not defined by...your past experiences, your childhood trauma, your parents, your job, your age, your clothes size, your mistakes, other people’s opinions, your worst moments, toxic relationships.”
How often do you experience an identity crisis? By that I mean, how often do you try to fit into someone else’s idea of who you should be?
We spend so much time and energy trying to fit in, to be perfect, to do what we believe we should do. Trying to make ourselves feel like we belong, or like we are worthy and important, like we matter.
But quite often this false persona is so far from who we actually are that we experience anxiety, inner confusion and a deep sense of not belonging.
The anxiety comes from believing that our worth, our importance, our personal truth, is defined by what we do, how we look and who we are in the eyes of the world. And, the more we believe in these false personas, the more our ego’s and false selves get strengthened, and the harder it becomes to break free and embrace who you truly are.
When you detach your sense of self-worth and identity from these expectations, you are able to live your life with more ease, freedom and acceptance. You will grow in confidence the more you focus on thinking for yourself, believing in what you feel is right and doing what YOU feel makes you happy.
Don’t wait for other people to tell you how to live your life. Be strong, be happy and most of all be you.
