Try Not To Look For Yourself Outside

When you say that you need to go find yourself, does that mean that you feel lost?

Did you find something that you would rather do instead?

A break is always nice, especially after working really hard. But taking a break with the intention of finding oneself is like trying to go fishing with the intention of catching a fish. At first, it may seem like “well why else would you go fishing if you don’t intend to catch fish?” Perhaps it is not so important what we do, rather than why we do it. Some people might want to spend time with their sons, or perhaps they would just like an excuse to be out on the boat. And what if you don’t catch any fish; would you deem the entire trip a loss? Being goal oriented is great, but we should always remember that, like Bruce Lee said, a goal is merely something to aim at.

If you take a break, then take a break. But going out with the intention of finding yourself is putting the same pressure on yourself that is making you take the break in the first place! There is no ideal version of you except for the version that you are right now. We are made to learn, mold and adapt. Whether we do it intentionally or have the universe do it for us, we are always under a constant state of change. There is no need to run away from yourself to find yourself. You are enough.

  1. Great article my friend. It is very true, everything is already perfect the way it is. And it has always been that way.

    Salvation is found within, it cannot be found without. It is very important to listen to the inner voice (intuition) rather than always looking for answers outside of yourself!

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to read, I appreciate it! Listening to intuition is essential yet can be so difficult, because the more we “try” to listen to it, the less we hear it and the more we think about it. Have a great day my friend.
