STOP TRYING TO FIT IN - YOU WERE BORN TO STAND OUT

Sylvia Marina - Thursday, March 18, 2010

STOP TRYING TO FIT IN - YOU WERE BORN TO STAND OUT - by Sylvia Marina pdf

Stop trying to fit in - you were born to stand out
 - by Sylvia Marina

People who constantly try to ‘fit in’ lose their identity in a fantasy of limitation and desperate desire to have known approval.

Are you a puppet controlled by strings?

Who is pulling those strings?

Who wants you to fit their mould, their beliefs? Parents, family, community, tradition!

Is it time to leave behind the preoccupation of fitting in just to be accepted?

People crave acceptance, but to be accepted many find they have to ‘fit in’, that can be as difficult as having your feet hobbled.  Hobbled - to tie the legs of a horse loosely together with a rope or strap to prevent it from moving away....to put restrictions on somebody or something to slow or prevent progress.

Understand that certain rules and conditions in the workplace and community are for safety reasons – please remember to be responsible... now, back to our topic!

What if, the decision was made on your behalf well before the day of your birth, as to your role in life – to be perfect, to fit in, to serve...

What would it mean to you to become your authentic self!
Not something that someone else wants you to be – to be your own truth.

I spent my childhood as a foster child, my situation/expectation was to fit into the model that others wanted me to be. I couldn’t. Understand I didn’t righteously live to be rebellious but during my childhood I was my own person as often as I possibly could be – yes I stepped out of line/others expectations, and was severely punished...did that make me a better person? No I grew to resent authority but age is a wonderful thing sometimes, mostly I now respect authority.

I was my own self and had my authentic truth and knowing inside of me.
Instinctively from birth I understood the law of nature and have continued to walk my own story and truth.

Consider this, if we were all supposed to be the same, we would all look the same?
Same hair type, same colour, same fingerprints, same height, same sense of humour, same thinking style, same likes and dislikes!

No matter how hard anyone tries to take away your individuality, it will always be there.

Imagine the birds that migrate. They have their truth and knowing within, their driving force is to be intent, to be on purpose with their inner knowing.

You have a choice – you can choose self mastery. The artist Michael Angelo saw the angel in the rock and chipped away to reveal perfection, the world of artists recognised his masterpiece!

For Self Mastery - be awakened to your authentic self then have the courage to use the rightful tools to become that which you know is possible, your own truth.

Words from the Buddha. There are only two mistakes you can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

In Love & Mastery, Sylvia Marina

MASTERY that state of being where words and actions are guided by awareness and purpose rather than habit and reaction - Sylvia Marina
