Feel like a square peg trying to fit in a round hole? THEN STOP IT!
You’re a unique square peg! The sooner you accept that the better you’ll be.
The truth is: we all are unique square pegs, individually designed for our individual path of life and purpose!
Problem is: most try to fit what society (family, peers, mates, particular circles within your sphere/industry and your religion) says you’re supposed to be. By the time you reach adulthood, having practiced resisting your own nature/individuality to assimilate you’ve forgotten who you are and what really matters to you, and you don’t know the way back to it.
But listen…though you know what you’re doing isn’t working, it’s causing you stress and you long to live what honors your being, but can’t see your way out…it’s all still right there, within you!!
Freedom, happiness, peace and joy are locked in all the things that differentiate you from the rest, not those that make you all the same.
LEARNING TO EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUE DESIGN OF DIFFERENCE
If the things you’ve aligned yourself with (now self-identified with) are causing you stress then you’ve strayed from your nature.
Popular belief is that you were born a blank canvas. That’s just not true and it’s why personal growth should never stop – success in every other area of life depends on you making the best decisions for YOU, not to please others. Living to fit in, be accepted and flexing to the point of bending is not living, and you WILL break! If this is you, you’ve got personal growth gaps.
Close the gaps, and you’ll find your own, reserved just for you, reservoir of peace.
If, after, you decide what’s best for you others are pleased too, fine! But the moment you stop making decisions to suit the comforts of others (and society) is when you begin to align with life’s purpose for you; when you’ll begin to enjoy more of life. Sure, it’s easier said than done, so don’t go it alone.
In order to stop living according other people’s desires OF you and start to live UP to your unique, individual design you have to honor your individuality. THAT’S WHERE YOUR PERSONAL, EVER-FULL RESERVOIR OF PEACE IS.
