The news is always so full of death, chaos, anger, and hatred. There are always stories about something bad. It’s easy to allow all of this negativity to influence your life, to affect your mind, and alter your attitude. Once you’re always hearing all of these bad things day after day it tends to infiltrate your mind.
You also think that’s other people. That won’t happen to me. it can’t happen to me.
But it can. Sometimes it does. Life isn’t always kind to you. Life won’t always go the way you want it to.
You can’t let it keep you down. It sounds so cliche doesn’t it? But you can’t. You can’t let life keep you down. Dig down deep and find your you. Find out what makes you you, and hold on to it. Because no matter what, you will be able to find your way back out of the funk. You’ll overcome whatever issue you have going on. Finding your inner you will help you find the strength to deal with whatever tragedy is going on.
I’m still searching for my inner me. I’m trying to find out who Heather is. What makes Heather tick.
If you know your you. If you’ve already found it, you’re golden. Because once you know who YOU are you’ve already solved your biggest problem.
Stay true to your inner you. It’s easy to get wrapped up in doing what everyone thinks you should do. Have this job. These friends. Live here. Date them. Wear this. Eat that. Don’t drink those.
Don’t live for those people. They do not make up your you.
So dig into you. Look into your mind.
Find your you.
Live for you.
Don’t live for them anymore. You can’t be a good worker. Wife. Husband. Mom. Dad. Sister. Brother. Or person if you don’t know what makes up you.
By finding your inner you you can figure out what your purpose is. What your values in life are. What motivates you. Don’t go by what everybody around you has told you. Go by what you have discovered about yourself. Not everyone will be able to figure this out though. Figuring out who you are will require self-awareness.
Break free of the labels that have been put on you throughout life. They don’t make you. You’re not your job. You’re not your hobbies. You’re more than what everyone tells you that you are.
