A Journey into Myself
For years, I had put the blinders on, as I continued to live up to the expectations of others.
All these years as I pleased people, was I actually living?
I think, I was merely existing or was I, in fact dying inside?
They say a setback is a setup for a comeback.
Like the phoenix bird, I had to rise from the ashes and believe in myself and love myself to become a new me.
I am going to fly as high as I can, go far as I can, on a long journey … a journey into myself.

So true, subconsciously we are always seeking approval, but it has to stop and the journey on self-awareness is must.

Well said, the only approval we need in life, is that of our positive inner-self!

True. So much time, energy, and life is wasted worrying about others opinions, wanting to be liked by others, needing to please others. The most important thing is what you think of you.

Fascinating. reminds me of Jhonathan Livingstone Seagull.

Hmmm… that was learning about life and flight, and about self-perfection. Thanks Anil.
