I was watching this movie tonight and i got inspired by one sentence a minor character said, in a way to push one of the protagonist to fight for what he wanted. This guy was giving up on something because he said “i’m not that courageous, I’m not that kind of guy”, and his friend told him “but this is not what you want to be, this is just who you think you are”.

What is the drive in our action? when we think we can’t do something we want, and we hide behind the excuse of “this is not in my personality”, “this is not me”, “I can’t do that”, “I wish i was that kind of person”…

well, who’s stopping you from beiong who you want to be?

Society and people we know, people we love and that love us, they all put a mask on our face, they build an image of us, they assign us a personality that is not necessarily our real one, and this happen because sometimes we don’t really act 100% ourself, for thousands of different reasons: to be polite, to please someone and many others… and that’s the result, we start believing we can’t do some things, that we are not that brave, that we are not that kind of guy/girl we so much envy and that can do what we wish we could.

well here’s the tip, that “I can’t” is nothing real, it is just in our mind, it is a silly excuse to live an ordinary life we most likely want to change.
It is for sure easier to just say “i’m not able” than try and failed.

I personally believe that that’s the best way to slowly die, to stop really living.

I tried and failed many times, sometimes success comes along as well, but if i look back i’m happy i fell couple of times, because that is actually what makes me smile now, happy of where/who i am and ready to change, experience,try,fail,succed, smile and cry.

I live every day as who I am, as the kind person I want to be, truly me, that you like it or not 🙂

If you read this give yourself a gift, 24 hours of acting as yourself, do not think of what someone else might think about you, of what they might say, do what you like, say what you think, be yourself, be brave.
