Sometimes it is hard to imagine where I would be if not for myself, I mean, if we don’t have ourselves who do we actually have? Picture this, you are on an island with no one else around, but yourself, what do you have? Of course, you have yourself, it is that easy. Who are we if we don’t have ourselves? The minute we are born many of our traits and characteristics are in us, in addition to the environment we live in will change and shape us to who we will become.
What happens to many people is they tend to lose themselves for many reasons which would explain all the problems and crazy things that people seem to do.
That guy who decided to push someone onto the tracks when the subway is barreling into the station or the woman who is waiting on line at the local fast food place suddenly decides to push her way to the front of the line while screaming obscenities. These are just some examples of crazy behaviors that we see all the time.
What makes people do the things they do? Well, it could be one of many reasons, depression, anxiety, anger management issues, drugs legal or illegal, losing a job or a loved one, the list is endless. However let’s get real, the one that should be held responsible for all their actions is the person doing them and that is YOU, ourselves.
What is wrong today is no one takes responsibility for their actions, people are way too quick to point fingers and blame something else. So many of us do not look at ourselves but to others when something is wrong. Come on people, get a hold of yourselves, you must not let yourself fall into this trap. You are your best friend, the one who knows you the best, the one that’s been with you all of your life.
I know that on many occasions I talk to myself, it helps me think things out, hey look there is nothing wrong with that, in fact, some of the most successful people suggest reading or thinking out loud as opposed to reading or having thoughts in your mind because you will have a clearer understanding of what you want as well as catching any mistakes that may exist. Go ahead try it sometimes but make sure that no one is around, you don’t want people to think you are off the wall.
Many therapists suggest screaming therapy where you are in a room and you let all your emotions out by screaming and yelling, it has been successful for many. So if you feel like you may be losing yourself, take a step back, relax, take a deep breath and SCREAM your head off! Do it until you have nothing to scream about or till you just run out of steam. You will notice that you are feeling better and less tense, imagine if more people took their anger or aggressions out this way there would be a lot less crap in the world.
I think it’s best to end this here before we lose ourselves but before I go remember never, never lose who you are or yourself because if you do you will not be able to find yourself.
