Back to yourself

You’ve been born into this life to experience it, to try to enjoy it, but now, after a couple of decades, you are tired of it. Who do you think you are? This is not how it works. Your life might have not been as you expected until now, but the way you choose to internalize that is only your responsibility.

Probably you have many years left to live in this world, so why not make them better than the years that passed? This can happen only if you do something about it. Your life up to this moment can’t be changed, but this doesn’t mean that it has no value. It will always be a source of lessons. It also helped you identify what you want and don’t want in your future, what works and what doesn’t work.

From this moment forward, you can make different choices. Choices that will transform your experiences into something that you enjoy. Life is for you to enjoy, but it also requires some effort on your side. A life that you enjoy doesn’t mean that things will come easily, it only means that when it gets hard you are confident that you will get through it.

When the hard part is finished, you will be still standing, and, hopefully, with some new lessons learned. Pain is a part of life, and it will visit you from time to time. The more lessons you learn, the easier it becomes to deal with it. You will never be able to avoid it completely but don’t convince yourself that pain is all your life is.

When will you listen to what your soul is saying? For such a long time you have ignored everything, trying to go on with life, but deep inside, you know that something is not right. Now you start to notice the cracks in the shell you used to isolate everything that you were not ready to listen to.

Will you ever be ready? Probably not, so why not listen to the voice inside? It’s only trying to remind you that who you want to be has nothing to do with the person inside. Every compromise you made until now forced a part of you to hide, and it replaced it with something that is not yours.

Your soul has never given up on these parts, and it’s trying to bring them into the light, so you can be whole again because it knows you were right from the beginning. All you have to do is listen to the words coming from inside. Listen to the ones that you know are right, even when you are afraid to do so.

The more you remember who you are, the clearer will be what you need to do going forward. As you listen more and more, you will begin to understand that is better to be liked by some people for who you are, rather than by many for someone you are not.

When you understand that there was never a good reason to become someone you are not, you will be ready to find your way back to yourself.
