Far too often we feel like we have to strike a balance between who we want to be (who we are) and other people’s ideas of who we should be.
Instead of being our authentic selves we end up as confused shells, never fully inhabiting our bodies or minds because we are too preoccupied with the expectations of others.
I’ve spent most of my life trying to find this balance… only to end up frustrated, confused and empty. I’ve begun to think that there is no balance – at least no balance that leaves you as your authentic self.
So stop worrying about fitting into the box that someone else has created for you. Fulfill your own promises and be the person who you want to be.
