We are all faced with situations or scenarios that sort of remind us of something we may have wanted or dreamed about and perhaps let go or didn’t pursue hard enough. Sometimes, we really can’t control it but then…sometimes we can.
I don’t want what’s for her, I don’t want what’s for him, I want what’s for me.
And the only way you can find what is for you, is if you work hard for it, work through the obstacles and then work past the suffering and setbacks. You have got to dig deep inside and learn who you are, why you are, what makes you tick and what makes you power down.
“A lot of people get so hung up on what they can’t have that they don’t think for a second about whether they really want it.” -Lionel Shriver.
The problem with coveting the dreams of others is precisely that….they are the dreams of others. Someone else’s dreams will never satisfy you deep down. Being blinded by what society feeds you as important, will also never satisfy you deep down.
“The thought of being whoever I want is a terrifying thing, because I have only ever been who everyone has wanted me to be.” – Dianna Hardy
The only way to really find that intrinsic happiness is to be true to yourself, find what you need to be happy and go after it without worrying what others might think. It may take your whole life but at least you will live your life fighting for something that really matters to you…something that makes you grow inside a little bit each day. xo
