Currently, I don't have a designated blog to posting threads like this one,
but let's face it, i'll get a lot more readers this way.
As we grow up, we learn lots of things. Some of them are taught and others are learnt by ourselves. We are thrown into this world, and we're left with one thing only: the ability to integrate that thing we learn into our raw behavior. As we are little, we don't know which things to take in and which to leave out. We're living for the sake of it, ignoring the fact that whatever we do, whatever we experience and whatever we learn, will be part of us for the rest of our lives.
Where do I want to go with this? There's no easy way to change who we are. In my opinion, there's no need to. Because who you are, doesn't really matter. You're just a living scrapbook of memories, moments, experiences, movies, opinions, thoughts, quotes, songs, teachings and learnings. It's not who you are that really matters. It isn't certainly not what others think about you. It's what you think about yourself. It's how you see yourself and the world around you. Nothing else.
You must be able to realize that sometimes life won't give you what you want, but if you try hard enough, someday it will.
This is where I wanted to get. You're taught to behave in a certain way, you're taught to say the right things. You're taught to stay safe, you're taught not to take risks. Isn't that sad?
There's just one thing between who you are and who you want to be. You must be able to be willing to take the risk to get there. If you want to cross the river, you must get wet. Sometimes there's a bridge, but you can bet that the bridge won't always be there for you to cross it.
I'll leave you with something I heard on a rerun on Fox:
It's not easy to break out of your comfort zone. People will tear you down, tell you you shouldn't have bothered in the first place. But let me tell you something: there's not much of a difference between a stadium full of cheering fans and an angry crowd screaming abuse at you. They're both just making a lot of noise. How you take it is up to you. Convince yourself they're cheering for you. You do that, and someday, they will
