In my 20’s I was concerned with my
image all the time. I worried of what others thought of me. Did I have the right clothes, what did they think of my job? Did people like me or was I annoying?
I got caught up in the rat race, and started focusing on making sure others approved of my life choices. I started wanting more expensive stuff so I could impress others and “keep up.”
I did things that I didn’t want to do just I wasn’t judged. I worried often if I was accepted by others and family.
I put a lot of pressure on myself. I worried way too much. I tried working harder to make more money which added greater stress.
At times I was so stressed I couldn’t sleep, and I would be so tired the next day. Some days I could barely get out of bed.
I wasn’t really living life for myself. It is not easy to always make the choices you want to make in life.
It took a devastating break up, to start examining my life and really looking at why I was making certain decisions for my life.
We get one life as far as we know, so get busy living.
Start asking yourself am I living my life for me or someone else?
This takes effort, and commitment. Keep peeling back the layers of your soul.
I work at it daily.
