We begin in God’s Blessed Name. Peace and Blessings.
We all struggle with our own understanding of self. Many times, if not often, we view ourselves through the lens of others. Unfortunately, your view of self-worth then begins to fluctuate in accordance of what is said to you or said of you. Its only when we being to view ourselves as an independent or separate entity, that finds no comfort in the approval of others, do we then begin to feel more confident and happy. If I were to give you sincere advice, it is to never care about what others think of you. Its not worth your time, energy or emotional investment. People will always disappoint you. Unless they are people of higher moral value and virtue.
When you begin to see yourself through others, you no longer see yourself. You see what others want to see you be. Or what you think you should be. Removing yourself from the mainstream culture of conventional thinking and acting is the first step to leaving this vicious cycle, which only leads to unhappiness and low self esteem. Constantly remind yourself that you are a unique individual with unique interest, and life experiences. If we were all to be the same, wouldn’t have God made us so already? Isn’t the fact that we are all unique and different a sign in and of itself? We aren’t meant to be like each other. Rather, we only enhance each others progress of finding who it is we are.
