    Taking My Life Back

    I've spent far too long being the person other people wanted me to be and doing things that other people wanted me to do. My parents opinions and approval have always mattered strongly to me and I'd never want to lose my parent's respect but I can see that I need to be my own...

    While manifesting your individuality you may

    find those around you questioning your liberation and expression. It is never your responsibility to please them. Not your family, not your friends. Don't cage yourself for them. Be free even if it's in solitude. You are doing the best you can and its beautiful.

    It is tormenting when one is,

    after struggling to the utmost, ready to head up for a new journey and then out of the blue, some thoughtless, mean-spirited beings come in the way just to act as a barrier that depicts the ruthless nature of someone, one hardly knows.

    I have come to the conclusion

    that I cannot date anyone while I'm separated... every time I start talking to them or go on a date I start to feel like I'm doing wrong. I talked to my wife, and she was confused about why. I told her it's because I am me and if I did anything different I wouldn't be me :)

    Everyone is unique and everyone is important.

    Do not act like anyone but you and do not try to be someone your not. You are best when you be yourself. The world is big enough for everyone. Do not hold back because the world sees you as weird. Instead, wear your weirdness with pride and wear it the way only you can.

    Something I hate is when people pretend to be

    someone they're not. That is not living life. You are imprisoned. Don't be someone just for someone else. Be yourself unless you really don't like yourself. If you have a weakness, a bad habit, or anything else, work on it. Improve yourself. But don't put on a mask.
