The majority of people's problems can be traced back to them doing what they really do not want to do. The problem is most people have been doing things they don't want to do for so long they no longer remember that what's sucking the life out of them is doing things they really do not want to do.
Who say you have to do what you don't want to? Other people, that's who. People who want you to do what you don't want to do so they don't have to.
When you are doing what you don't want to do, you are being untrue to yourself... And when you are untrue to yourself life stop working for you. When life stop working for you it is no longer a joy for you but rather a hardship that sucks your soul dry to the point you want to die.....
If you want your life to work, start being true to yourself...
“A lot of the conflict you have in your life exists simply because you're not living in alignment; you're not be being true to yourself.” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
“Sometimes, being true to yourself means changing your mind. Self changes, and you follow.”
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”
― Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao: Living with Balance and Harmony
