When I was young, I had no idea what I was and what I wanted to become. I listened too much to what other said what I was and where I should have gone better. And I thought it might have been me and my future even without any doubt. Sure! I supposed to make others glad for being what they wanted me to become was a good job especially for good girls. It is funny!!!.. Now I know.. Haha
Well, I tried very hard to be a nice girl for those who always judged me how I should have done. I cannot even describe how deep I was proud of myself when I heard
‘ How clever you are!’
from them for what I have done as what they desired. I did not even know that it drove me foolish by lack of thinking.
However, there was always a part of me that searched what I wanted to do, talk, act and go behind them. And I cannot help thanking that part of me nowadays for turning my eyes into the right world. Let’s go back! Sure, I was never able to stop researching those a few questions in every night before bedtimes. I had no one to discuss with what I wanted at that time. It was terrible!… I swear that having no body to tell a little bit about what you are thinking must be the most loneliest time in the world. Yes. . I did have those moments. Well…anyhow, I trusted myself that I was special.
So, I started to talk to myself. Oh yes! Are you wondering if I was out of my mind? Haha … Of course not! I was too intelligent to waste my time of thinking and getting depression on having no one beside me for my little talk. I talked myself,
‘ I will become a good person and all I want is coming to me.’
‘ I did great today!’
‘ I am a nice girl.’
in every single night before I went sleep.
Moreover, when I got up and went for clean up, I whispered to myself like..
‘ I am still alive.’
‘ I am still alive.’
‘ Oh, I can do everything I want to.’
‘ Yes! Yes! Yes! I’m a good girl.’
in every morning.
It was not enough for me to keep talking myself like the way I mentioned above. Moreover, I wrote those motivational words on many pieces of papers, in my books and even on the sand, leaves, old sheets that tended to throw, tissues whenever I got chances to do. My aim was that I wanted to let the whole me know I am special that I will make the life I am into one day in the future. I did continue writing much more when I felt I had nothing and others tried to drag me down than I have done ever before.
It is very special. You know? I came less stress and fear but gained more and more confidence. The most important thing what I feel most satisfied is that I could ignore what others’ opinions to me. I am able only to focus on what the inner soul says to me. What I want to be, what I enjoy and what I really want to work become the majority of my life now.
So far, I am fearless of asking for anything I feel I want to. I am not afraid of saying ‘NO’. I enjoy myself. I feel so much confortable with myself. I have self-respect. I am now working what I am actually keen on.
Every day is now meaningful.
I feel loved, peaceful, happy and can even truly see the meaning of my existence.
I live every single moment that I keep breathing in and out.
What about you?
You can live every day. It is your life. Yes, it is yours! Nobody else’s. Just try to enjoy your existence.
