For the deep thinkers & the elite dreamers…
As fascinating and entertaining as people are, there’s beauty and necessary discovery in solitude. Being alone allows you to self-reflect and work on yourself, your soul, your heart… something that is too difficult to do with the noise of other people’s thoughts and opinions- no matter how good-intentioned they are. Even if someone is giving you sound advice that will actually enhance your life, you won’t receive the message that easily without doing self-work. We know that our experiences are meant to be life lessons, yet sometimes we choose to viciously repeat the same mistake, ignoring what we (usually) know is the correct way to handle it. In doing so, we HURT OURSELVES continuously.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
Yet, we question our pain and struggle, when in reality, our stubbornness is obstructing the life lesson we are meant to learn. We blame our repeated insanity on being optimistic, but optimism is not a good excuse. Let’s be optimistic that GROWING & EVOLVING will work better for us. Generally, the lesson we fight to accept and grow from is the one that is key to unlocking our greatness. But, we give into our weaknesses instead of challenging them. We fall victim to our insecurities, give into fleeting emotions and are left with regret and depleted self-confidence. We convince ourselves we are not worthy and not strong enough since we’ve failed so many times. But, we are. Making mistakes is a part of life and contributes to our growth. No matter how long it takes us to learn these lessons, we must continue to try and conquer our negative self-talk. And, to do this, we must allow ourselves to explore and find comfort & beauty in solitude. Being alone with your thoughts and emotions is ultimately liberating! You may feel imprisoned by your non-stop array of emotions and thoughts at first, but as time passes you will learn to sort through & process them, and discover the logical and most effective way in handling them. Give yourself your power back!
