There are as many paths in the world as there are people to take them.
Which means not everybody you encounter will understand and relate to your unique approach to life.
And that’s fine. One man’s weirdness is another man’s refuge.
What matters is making peace with that weirdness in ourselves. Taking pride in our own habits and needs, and not abandoning them on a moment’s notice just because some jerk who barely knows us finds our actions to be unusual and confusing.
Happens to me plenty, and even if a part of me feels hurt and rejected and shamed by their judgment, there are several questions that remind me to make peace with the weirdness in myself.
You might ask yourself a few of these the next time you’re shamed for being yourself.
- Does this help me build a life that supports calmness?
- Does this enable me to make significant contributions to the world?
- Does this make me more effective as a human being?
- Does this keep me connected with self and spirit?
- Does this bring joy, meaning and fulfillment to my relationships?
- Does this help me act more kind towards myself and others?
- Does this allow me to make healthy choices that please and nurture my soul?
If the answer is yes, go for it. With all your heart.
Do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself and others.
Even if people look at you like you have three heads.
Those who would embrace the weirdness you have to offer will come running.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Are you brave enough to choose precisely what it is you want?* * * *
