Have you ever had a moment in your life when you suddenly understand something about yourself or the world around you? A moment where something in
your head just seemed to "click" into place? An overwhelming feeling that your view of things around you and/or yourself became crystal clear?
I recently had an experience like this. I woke up one day a few weeks ago and realized how hilariously irrelevant most of the people in my life were
to me. I realized that most of the people I worry about impressing or worry over appearances for are completely and totally irrelevant to my life.
It's like a ton of emotional baggage suddenly dropped all at once and I felt good about myself for the first time in a long time.
Sure, I still occasionally have doubts about myself, but I no longer constantly worry about walking too fast or too slow, whither my voice is too low
or too high, or how the people I pass in the halls view me. None of it matters. I realized that if I don't live life for myself, then it will be one
miserable experience after another. I have friends who like me for who I am, and that says a lot. Who cares about people who don't like me? Why
should I care about how they view my habits or the way I talk?
So, I guess I'm here to ask if anyone else can point to a day or moment in their life where things suddenly became clearer. Everyone has always told
me that changes like this come slowly, so when I woke up that day, I was a little taken aback.
So how about it, have you had a *click* moment in your life? Or have you experienced slower changes in perspective?
