Our parents, relatives, friends, teachers and society, have brought up most of us so that our behaviour is socially acceptable.
This is required for an orderly Society and for interaction with others!
But, it makes us lose our uniqueness and capabilities which get covered and hidden, as many layers of dust cover a mirror over a period of time and it looses it’s reflectivity. We become more like everyone else and like sheep we live our lives doing what others want us to do or copying others. We do not do what we really want to do for fear of being ridiculed or ostracized by our parents and others in our society!
At least when we are not interacting with others, we need to do what we like to do and are capable of doing and not do what others expect us to do! This will bring out our full potential and our uniqueness that we are born with! This will also result in our living a happy & peaceful life!
“At least when we are not interacting with others, we need to do what we like to do and are capable of doing and not do what others expect us to do!” – This is big. Especially in a society that’s becoming more and more extroverted. Come to think of it, taking time for yourself is a common behavior among all people who I feel have it “figured out”.
Well it is nice to know that taking time out for one self is becoming more frequent by Spiritually aware people like you. This is the need of these times. More socialising, more work are not the answers to good liviing!
How about more drinking? 🙂
Well! it might make you feel temporarily that you have discovered yourself! But, it won’t last!
