What Happens When You Find Yourself

You found meaning within your life.

What Happens When You Find Yourself

Finding yourself in this big world is a very important thing to accomplish. One may say " I already know myself, I have been in this body since I was born." However, finding your self-means being at peace with who you are and discovering the meaning of your life. Finding yourself is not something that can be done over night. It will take trial and error, at times you will get discouraged but you can't give up because it is so important. Finding yourself is not an easy task but it is well worth it. It will take losing friends and going through many phases.

For example, I was the girl who never really fit into a particular group in high school. I would jump around from group to group but it never really felt like they understood me. Back then I would try to conform to whatever anyone wanted me to be. Conforming to what someone wants you to be will never be satisfying. I realized that the hard way.

Eventually, I got tired of changing myself and made the decision to stay true to myself no matter what. I realized that my new attitude towards life benefited me very much. For instance, I was much happier doing the things that I loved over trying to please someone else. I began saying "No." to a lot of different things. This has helped shaped me into the woman I am today.

Once you start doing things for yourself you will figure out who you are. Spend time reading books and spending time on the things you love. Once you discover the things that you love you will have no desire to try to do or be anything that is outside of your comfort zone.

When you began to develop that sort of mentality you will find out things about yourself that you never knew. I figured out that I am an avid reader. I love all types of books. I also discovered that I am shy but fierce, meaning that I stand up for what I believe in.

It is so important to find who you are. The world can not be transformed by followers. It is the leaders who stand up and make a difference. It takes a person who is able to be firm in their beliefs.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
