How much do I know myself?

In life you will be challenged, to get know yourself better, to get to know your true-self. So, if you are aware enough you can let go of it. Recently, I have came upon questioning myself and my beliefs. what I would do for myself or others. How important the “I” is?

For example, I like to have the upper hand, to be in control. Not being in control scares me. ( and believe me I am trying so hard to make as much mistakes as possible and lose the fake control). But, the next question is why do I want to be in control. The answer shockingly is that other people’s opinion is important. So, the follow up question, The things I don’t do, is it because I care about what other people think or is it because I don’t want to. What is the freaking line here!

And at the end, what kind of story is my mind creating? Is my mind creating all these or I know it by heart?!

I truly want to unlearn these concepts. To be truly free! How does you get to be truly free? for sure not caring what other people think is an important step, another is to have respect for people, but most importantly respect for yourself. no guilt!

I know I am not alone when it comes to these feelings, but knowing them and watching these feelings is an important step.

I love to finish this journey with wonderful Jack Kornfield’s quote. “May you know the beauty of your own true nature.”

Spread love,

  1. I like your quote. When you find out how to not let others words affect you; let me know, because I have that problem too. I think it’s okay to care – a little bit – what others think, as long as you realize it’s just their opinion – not fact – and as long as you don’t let their words affect you negatively. It’s easy to say, now we both need to do it!

      I don’t know where the line between caring and being myself is. I think that’s the part I am struggling the most. Although, I am sure more towards other peoples feelings than my own. If you have any suggestions I am all ears.
