What is Wrong With Me?
I bet this question has crossed your mind not just once. You know the feeling I am talking about. That feeling that you feel like you almost never fit in. You feel and think differently. You look at your friends, your family, your co-workers and you just can’t be like everyone else. No matter how hard you try, nothing changes.
My friend keeps asking this question and keeps trying to find an answer to a simple problem. He thinks that happiness is something that can be achieved by being like everybody, like normal people. And if no matter what he does, wherever he goes, he still doesn’t fit it, it has to mean that there is something wrong with him. Otherwise he would be happy. He would keep his well paid job, he would live in his house and try to find a mate, and maybe even start a family. Isn’t that what happiness means? Isn’t that what everybody wants and thrives for?
The truth is simple: there is nothing wrong with the world and there is everything wrong with the world.
I will tell you what’s wrong with you. You are trying to live according to somebody else’s rules and following dreams that are not yours.
You feel lost, you feel out-of-place, you feel so alone. And you feel that way because your heart has come face to face with beliefs that got shoved down your throat since childhood. When the truth inside you collides and contradicts your beliefs, your brain goes into a panic mode. It hurts physically and emotionally. It created chaos…
Forget what you have been taught and find your way. No matter what you say, your heart already knows the answer. No matter how hard you try to argue, ignore, and prove something, you already know the truth. All you need to do is to accept it…
