The path to rediscovering ourselves
How many of us really have the courage to venture down this path? And out of those who do have the courage, how many are ready to find out the truth that lies at the end of it?
This journey is about change, it is about taking risks and turning your life upside down. Leaving the comfort of certainty and diving deep into the unknown can be quite a challenge. Especially when you are stuck in the past and unable to set yourself free from what is holding you back.
The most terrifying thing about taking this step is that we have to do it on our own. Not being able to rely on someone at every step that we take, not having someone to guide us through and offer us some kind of support. Not knowing whether you are heading the right way or drifting away can be challenging. The thing is, there is no right or wrong way of going through this phase in your life. There is no certain answer waiting for you at the end and that is because this journey is unique for each and every single one of us. It is not something that you can talk about with your parents or friends and share opinions because everyone experiences things differently. Even though the life situations might be similar, every single human being has a distinctive way of feeling and experiencing life.
How does it all start? Something happens in your life. A big life-changing moment that makes you question yourself and everything around you. It is as if all this time you have been walking in the darkness and now someone lighted a candle for you and is waiting for you to make the flame grow even bigger. This little flame is just the beginning of your journey.
This journey that you have to take in your life makes you look back on everything that has been going on around you and it helps you see it through a different perspective. It is as if you are looking from the outside at yourself and question everything that you once thought that defined you.
It is about finding out who you really are when no one is watching you. The person that hides under all those masks that we put on in front of people to please them awaits to be discovered. It is about learning how to stand up for you and speak your mind without thinking about what others might say. It is about having the courage to love yourself first and put yourself first and rediscover the things that once made you happy. The things that you can do for yourself.
If we can understand that during our life we are constantly changing and learning and improving in order to become our best version then we can accept the change that comes in different stages of our life.
People usually tend to be afraid of change but this is the main element that defines this journey of rediscovering yourself. In order to be able to find out who you truly are you need to be open to what the life has in store for you.
Life is full of surprises. One day you are the happiest you have ever been and then, without realising, your life turns upside down. Do not waste any moment of your life saying that you have enough time because life is unpredictable. Live to the fullest, learn to love to do things by yourself first before doing them with someone else and do not remain stuck in the past.
No matter how hard it may seem, it is never to late to start over again and rediscover yourself and find true and genuine happiness.
