“Learn to embrace change, and you’ll begin to recognize that life is in constant motion, and every change happens for a reason. When you see boundaries as opportunities, the world becomes a limitless place, and your life becomes a journey of change that always finds its way.”
Happy Friday everyone! Today in my entry I am talking about self-identity. Knowing who you are as a person, a very important expectation in life is crucial. The only person you can be is yourself and even if you change to be accepted will you be happy with yourself? You can spend your whole life trying to please everyone but at the end of the day, all you have is yourself.
Awareness of one’s individual identity is rooted in their identifications and what they associate themselves with. On a personal level it may be religion or someone who [hates] another person because of their religious classification. The world we live in moves so fast and as you grow, some people are so caught up in their religious belief they can’t learn how to live. Many have been judged because religion may not be apart of their destiny like it is in theirs. Why are so many people scared to let go and just be themselves without a stamp of religion on their face. They think religious beliefs are like a nightmare and no one has woken up. I think it can be directly defined as a spell everyone is under. Belief in a creator is not vindicate and everyone is [entitled] to their own opinion but don’t knock the next person because they may decide that a religious group is not for them because at the end of the day being you is what matters because [everyone] else is taken. So does that make you better than me because you claim to be something yet, don’t live out the values and morals that group acclaims to be? When it all falls down, you have to respect atheism, religion, and science. So religious makes a person who they are no not actually. At the end of the day it is what you stand for. Turning your back on someone because of a preference that has been part of a ball of confusion before our time is like basically saying you are committing a hate crime. Having knowledge of self is what matters. No one should have to be chained to ideas and assumptions that we don’t know are true or false it’s what we decide to take upon ourselves to go forth with.
I think its sick that people are brainwashed and controlled by a government ran business that get money off people thinking that something is going to eventually open up the sky and created all these different branches of religions that people think they have to pick and choose from. I am so glad I am an [open-minded] individual and just because I may have been raised in the church I didn’t let that hold me back from living nor choosing my [own destiny] instead of what a parent choose for me religion doesn’t make me and neither does it make anyone else and if people could wake up and see that then I think this world could start being a better place. I am human and me and not ashamed for being who I am or being bias to different things. If that makes me a bad person then I guess that’s a high five for me because at the end I am going to be the only one happy with myself and not anyone else. So many people go through life and when they find out a truth they regret not just thinking outside of the box and just living according to them. At the end of the day, you cant turn back the hands of time and it’s not stopping for no one so what will you do? Will you continue thinking just because you are apart of a certain group you’re self-righteous?
Peer-pressure is not just an issue surrounding growing adolescents it also conflicts with grow-ups as well. Responding to peer-pressure is a part of human nature. It's natural for people to identify with and compare themselves to their peers as they consider how they wish to be (or think they should be), or what they want to achieve. People are influenced by peers because they want to fit in, be like peers they admire, do what others are doing, or have what others have. Recognizing a [true] friend and one who is not your true friend and who may have helped you out through life and now thinks you owe them is not a healthy relationship. It takes a toll on who you are and who you are living for. What will you stand for when that person turns their back on you because you don’t agree with them? Will you continue to want to be like them and live your life through their shoes? Next thing you know you hit your 50’s and still not living but kissing their ass and then your whole life passes by and you haven’t did anything you wanted. Peer pressure has this type of an effect on a persons life. It starts to cause problems in family and with other associates be your self first because showing signs of weakness will always be in your face and that is the key that people know they can take advantage of you.
Concluding this I am what you are [NOT]. What you take into your mind determines what it puts out. The quality of your thoughts determines the quality of your life. Like attracts like so whatever you are most comfortable with is what you will get out of life what you put out there is what you will get as well. Are you being who you want to be is your identity what your happy with? If you are not satisfied with your answer then you need to take a look at your self and standing up for what [you] believe in matters first instead of hiding and being what you was taught what about going out and learning for yourself. If you decide to be stuck inside a box the rest of your life that’s find but just because the [next] person want to explore their questions and [live] don’t extort them because they are the one’s truly fighting for their rights
