I sometimes wondered if I was different. I would sometimes compare myself and where I am at in my life with others. I would feel that I am an alien or left out of certain social groups because, for example I know that a lot of people in my age bracket are married and have kids, or at least married. I know my dating history and look back thinking to myself that if I was truly happy with so and so I really should have stayed with so and so. Then I wonder, if am I so different, how much different than anybody else am I? Is there anything about me that really is all that different? If so what? Good question. I'd like to know.
What do YOU know about you? Are you different? Yes? No? And does it really matter whether you know how different you are to others or not? What if you could trust you to know what you would like to create as YOUR life, regardless of arbitrary parameters other people set? So what would you like to create as your life now? Don't know? Ask some more questions :)
Revising my answer in more detail:
Sometimes as I look around and see people in my age bracket, and they are for example, married with the kids, have a certain status, and are at a certain place in their lives I wonder about myself. Do I compare myself? Not really. Do I wonder if there's something about me that makes me all that different from others? Yes, in a way. And if so, I wonder what that difference is, and what does it have to do with whether or not I have access to certain things, people, situations, relationships, in my life? How different could I be? I am willing to accept whatever it is that makes me different. I am interested in know what it is. If I can know what makes me different and knowing it would help me somehow improve, grow, evolve then I am all for it. Maybe that is it, maybe it's my constant willingness to grow, evolve and change that makes me different. Surely there are many others out there like me. I know you must follow under that growth path. Do those others simple settle and just not even think about the things I think about? Which is fine. Do they just not want to think about anything at all and simply do life? Rather than think about it? I have been known to put my thoughts into action many times. I tend to think then do. Listen, observe, then speak. Would me knowing my unique secret ingredient help me? Or is it better not to know?
The question asks itself.
What I know about me is I am unique. My own experience in life is my own personal reality that no one else can copy. It is true that the arbitrary parameters that other people set are are useless for me to follow personally because to do so would not yield the same exact result as it did for the others before me. Is it wrong to try to follow arbitrary parameters? Is it heavy to do so? Could it be light? Could it be right?
What sense do you have for YOU? What if nothing were right or wrong? What if there was only what worked for YOU? So ask every 10 seconds "Does doing this [ie following X arbitrary parameter] work for me right now? Yes? No?" Then see what feels light for you. What if there were no answer or right or wrong way to do/be anything? What if there were only choice, awareness, question and possibility? Have a great day!
