Stepping outside the box of your portable prison, the questions arise:
Who are you?
Do you allow yourself to blossom and grow into the Real You?
Do you allow the expectations of others rob you of your energy, which only leaves you broken and suffering from low self-esteem because you tried your hand at pleasing people?
I say to you this day STOP! It takes too much energy and time away from you to live a life that is representative of others’ thoughts and perception about the life they believe you should be living. Stop allowing others who believe they have your best interest at heart to hinder you from being you and evolving into your true self.
When life’s chapter comes to an end, what matters the most?
The reflection that peers back at you in the mirror or the mask you used to cover up your inability to have a voice and tell others NO; your failure to stand up for yourself or the lack of courage to choose your own path in life.
Stepping outside the box of familiarity is more liberating than playing it safe in life and doing things the way others expect you to do them.
God, granted each person one life to live, what will you do with yours?
