Live the life your soul wants

Why do people try to change you?

Mostly this happens because people are uncomfortable with those who are grounded in walking their own path so it’s about them not you. It challenges them to face this issue within themselves.

Growing up I never believed there was any such thing as the so called normal, so I have never been a follower. My mother told me I wasn’t normal, so I just said ‘good’ then I’m being true to myself. Being young I thought what’s the big deal, why can’t people just be themselves and follow the path they feel drawn to. Of course, as I grew older I started to understand why people had such difficulty in being true to themselves.

Nothing has changed much in that regard accept I much more grounded in who I am so not shaken by others who may want to change me because of their own conflicts within themselves.

I still think it’s simple be true to yourself because I came into the world like that, but I also realize that is not the case for many. I am not a believer or support the saying ‘If I can do it so can you’ for many reasons but I am a believer in what you do in life shows others it can be done no matter how difficult your challenges.

One thing I do know, and experience is those who are true to themselves and walk their own path is that we share an inner peace other people are still trying to find.
