We create our own world. Our world is a representation of our experiences, encounters, perceptions, thoughts and feelings. We create our perspectives of good and bad. And with that, we create our senses of happiness and satisfaction and despair and sadness. We attach an emotion to an experience. But happiness shouldn’t be something we only find in particular experiences, because the world is sometimes uncontrollable and unfair. Happiness is something we create within – an emotion we foster due to and in spite of our experiences. We shouldn’t rely on the external world to create our happiness. It’s more about our perspective. We create happiness on the inside. Let the happiness shine from within and create a new world.
We all put on fronts at one time or another. We try to hide how we’re truly feeling from others and sometimes ourselves. Sometimes the strongest are the most sensitive. Sometimes the one surrounded by people is the loneliest. Sometimes the most cheerful are not the happiest. Sometimes the one who seems the most confident has insecurities. We all struggle with certain issues, and it’s not always apparent on the outside. Let’s be mindful of the difference between our perceptions and reality. Treat everyone with kindness, including yourself, because we all go through rough times, even if it doesn’t show. And don’t be afraid to admit how you’re feeling. It’s okay to be vulnerable. And hopefully that will set you free.
Times can be tough. Everyone experiences them in one form or another, and not only once. Even if we think others might have it easier, we’re all going through our own battles. It’s not our circumstances that make the difference, it’s who we are on the inside that counts. It’s about believing in yourself. It’s about unleashing that inner fire and burning those negative thoughts. It’s about believing in happier times. It’s about fighting for what you deserve and what you want out of life. It’s about becoming stronger and better. Circumstances might shape who we are, but we decide who that is. You decide what you’re made of.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes – Carl Gustav Jung
