So easily in today's society, we accept labels placed on us. We often allow people to tell our stories. Why is that? Do we not know ourselves? Do we not have the strength to put fire behind our own identities? Is it something we are taught at a young age? Your destiny is yours to wield and no on else. You are not a puppet on a string and this isn't masterpiece theatre. Take back the pen and write your own story. Only you know who you are.
A child Mindset/NO FEAR
Children are uninhibited. They are not reserved or restrained. They display who they are unapologetically without fear of judgment or ridicule. When navigating this world, you have to have a child mindset. Children may still be discovering who they are, but they display who they think they are as they grow proudly. They enjoy the ride and rejoice in figuring it out. Most importantly children thrive on their individuality. They stand firm in their identity and rebel against anyone who tries to change them.
Sadly as we get older, our stories begin to be written for us. We blend in and conform. Society begins to tell us how to act and speak. Depending on the setting society tells us what to wear, how to act, and how to be. Then before you know it, we are mirroring someone else's narrative.
Take Back the Pen
Take back the pen and write your own story. Take sometime to figure out who you are. Be by yourself and meditate on that. Who were you before society fucked you up. What was you trying to become. When you leave this earth how do you want people remember you? What is the story they are going to read with your name on it and did you write it yourself? Most importantly, when you look back at your time on this earth, were you happy?
