Growing up as a child, we are nurtured, guided and educated about life. The first introduction to the world are through our parents eyes and depending on their philosophy of life we become them. Whatever, mummy or daddy said was right, that was it. When we become teenagers, we question everything around us and become self-aware of our inner abilities to decide our future. During this period we want to be like our friends or more acceptable to our community. As a result of this, we do anything just to please others.
If our parents didn’t nurture us properly about our unique identity as an individual, we lose our self-esteem, live in the shadows and become like others but we never feel adequate. Now coming into adulthood, we realize trying to be like others was totally wrong, never enough, and unfulfilling. After all that has been said and done, in the end diversity is the true spice of life and we begin an intentional journey of self-discovery and self-love.
Just remember, no one can ever be like you and you must leave your mark on the sands of time.
Be you and Do you!!!
