Most of us love to solve the puzzles. After solving each puzzle we feel so relieved and proud. So let us first solve the world’s most beautiful , unique and yes the even most important of all puzzles -“US” . You will know what a wonderful feeling it is to solve the mystery of yourself.
“Who in the world am I ? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.”
~ Lewis Carroll
Let us start loving ourselves. It is our experiences , that shape us into the people we are today , this doesn’t mean that we necessarily know who we really are – what we are passionate about and what we want from life.
Everyone is unique. Each person is different from the other. This is because life teaches every person a different lesson and we grow accordingly.
“Be yourself ; everyone is already taken.”
No one is at the mercy of life. Everyone has to face all the hurdles life throws in front of them. Instead of being miserable , grow and learn out of those problems. After every new hurdle , you’ll find a new piece of yours. And with these pieces you can easily solve your puzzle.
When we are stricken and can not bear our lives any longer , then a tree has something to say : Be still ! Be still ! Look at me ! Life is not easy , life is not difficult. Home is within you , or home is nowhere at all.
At times we do things , not because who we are , but for we want to fit in. And somewhere in the race of fitting in , we forget what we actually are. We lose that unique factor of ours. Then at a later stage when you are tired of all the hardships , trying to fit in and faking yourself … you’ll ask yourself – Who am I ? Is this real me ? Is this what I wanted from me ? You will be a question mark for yourself.
Have the guts to say and accept – yes , I am different. It’s fine if people do not understand me. I will be in my lane.
” My journey to discover my identity is ongoing. Being so sensitive , I know I am often influenced by other people’s goals and desires , so I consciously make an effort to find out what it is I really want by taking the time to listen to myself.”
