And I look, and I see how people go through life ..
So full of resentment, of scars,
In a struggle to find happiness elsewhere, without realizing that they have it at their fingertips. Without realizing that you can be happy with so little.
That with just forgiveness and releasing that resentment that we carry inside, we are filled with a certain peace that all the money in the world cannot buy.
With just loving oneself, our happiness is assured because we do not need anyone else to make us happy. because nobody is responsible for us but ourselves. so we can share that happiness with other people, and we would not let them carry the weight of having to make us happy. I have repeated the word “happiness” or “happy” many times.
and yes, that's why we come into this world, right? To be happy. and society engrains certain rules into us and tells us that if we follow those rules, we will find happiness. as if we were all the same. as if each and every one of us does not have our own dreams and desires. How does society know what makes me happy? Where does it say that if I do such a thing, that it's wrong? And what if I do not want to get married or have children? What if I'm gay? And if I do not want to go to university and I want to be a nomad and travel the world? if I do not go to church? where does it say it's bad and that I cannot do it? Of course everyone will criticize me, and “what will the people say?” 😱
And so we live. well, most people live. I consider myself within the minority that lives day by day, as well as if each day were the last, without thinking about what others think. I have been healing my wounds caused by prejudices and lies created by society, forgiving anyone I thought it was unforgivable, closing cycles that no longer lead me to anything. releasing what does not belong to me, lightening my backpack. And more than anything, by thanking each person who has gone through my life, because I have learned something from each one. thanks to all of this, I am the woman that I am today ... there is still a long way to go, but every time I make a step, I become stronger.
What else is posible?
