Quite often what keeps us from our peace, joy and happiness is that we are stubborn and insist on keeping the wrong company-the circle of friends that in reality become our frenemies because they’re looking out for themselves and not us.
However, we are so desperate to fit in that we trade our authenticity for a clone-like of our frenemies. This happens, at some point, to everyone; usually in our younger years of life.
It’s easy to lose yourself when you are actually around people swaying you into being and doing things that you really don’t care for. But you go ahead and walk their talk because you don’t want to be lonely. But, in reality you’re actually feeling pretty lonely because YOU are not doing what brings you true joy because you’ve become an impostor.
When you finally feel the heavy burden of loneliness and sadness around a crowd as this impostor; that’s when you actually begin to wonder and ask yourself-what the hell am I doing? Who am I anymore?
When you start asking those questions, you are in need of detoxifying your life. That’s the only way you will peel off those fake layers of negativity and find your authenticity.
When you find your authenticity, you’ll recognize that you feel more relieved of the pretenses that you let go of and that empowers you to continue the self-love process in getting you gradually at your highest authentic self. You will feel like you won the lottery because now you have peace, joy and happiness in your conquest of becoming YOU.
