Some of the things that I have learned so far and that I am still learning. Life is constantly changing so why not to better adapt to it!
As a child the part of growing up that always excited me, was the freedom. The freedom to do what you want, and go wherever you want to go, and to be free to make your own choices. We all know this is true to an extent but as an adult we may reverse back into childhood obeying whatever cultural ‘shoulds’ of the culture, family and country we live in without even questioning if we even believe them to be part of who we are. And as a child we are often blissfully unaware of the responsibilities and challenges that come with the freedom we so eagerly seek. And while we will all grow older every year that does not mean that we will all grow up in the full sense of the word.
We have all felt rejection at some point in our lives and I guess we can all agree it is not a great emotion to feel. There are studies that show that the areas that activate in the brain when we feel emotional pain are the same than when we receive physical pain. From an evolutionary perspective we needed this pain to avoid being ostracised as the chances to survive were better when you were part of a group.
I believe that we should be celebrating every single time things go well, we achieve things, we get love or we have lots of fun. I profoundly believe this is important and also a big part of why I am getting happier and more grateful with my life every day. I also find that some people do not react well to this and prefer to look at the glass as half-empty or just to focus on the 2% of negative from what otherwise would be a fantastic piece of news. I see these people as always walking under a dark cloud, they always seem to get the shorter end of the stick, they are always the unlucky ones and misfortune seems to follow them around wherever they go. But another characteristic of these type of people is that they do not get why other people see life in such a ‘happy’ way when there is so much going wrong, in their opinion.
Are you afraid of change? Am I or Am I becoming? When to stop working toward the future self and to enjoy the present more.
