Being you is a journey of presence, and one that gains self awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.
While what we are drawn to do in life largely creates what we have become, our purpose is all about what we came to learn, experience, and understand.
We are not brought up to be ourselves and create a life on our own terms, but rather we must be extroverted social animals thriving on the illusion of someone else's prescription for success and happiness.
As a result many have lost who they are and end up living a life that society dictates, or ones their families prescribe for the illusion of success, comfort, and security.
Once realised many will then end up spending many years unpacking someone else's ideals and beliefs of who they should be. It doesn't have to be that way and it's time people started saying no so they can start living the life they came here to live.
