I believe there is a heavy movement against the self that is, whoever is waging the war doesn't want you to accept yourself for who you are.
We all want to be something different, never quite happy where we are. “If only I could; look like, or be like, or have
that then I would be happy” I do not say “Strive not for more”, more simply put; see the beauty of what you have now and love it because its who
you are at this moment, find your peace from within, find happiness from inside yourself rather than depending on the fickle world to deliver it to
you because what if you depend on money for happiness, in times of lack of money you will also find a lack of happiness, and this is not only
applicable to cash; Dependence on anything works in this situation.
Again I clarify I do not mean to say “Depend not on others and let not others depend upon you” But rather Do
not solely expect others to make you happy because that puts a tremendous load on someone else and often times split ways eventually due to the stress
of not being able to provide this insurmountable task. How can you love another before yourself? If you cannot love yourself before another it will
cause conflict from within, know or not you will question how they can love you when you cannot, you will mistrust their affections as false and this
only adds to the burden of trying to provide you with joy. Stop picking at insignificant flaws and comparing yourself to everybody else, didn’t
nature teach us this lesson? No two snowflakes are alike and yet they are all beautiful, embrace yourself and love who you are, be true to yourself
always and never conform to conflicting ideals. Shine by being your own light rather than trying to borrow from somebody else’s, and share. A candle
loses no flame when lighting another candle, spread joy and love. Be abundant in life and share moments with others. LIVE
