I know that to live a fulfilling life, you should live as authentic as possible. No lies to yourself. Understand that life can be messy. Understand that to grow means painting outside lines.
You don’t have to be honest with all the people around you. But you have to be honest with yourself.
What fulfills you? What do you want to have achieved in life in 10, 20, and/or 30 years? Is it a healthy family? Is it progressing the human species? Is it conquering your enemies? Is it exploring the unknown? Or anything else?
Get away from places you don’t want to be. Celebrate the places where you can be authentic. You know where those places are.
Don’t lose your authenticity. Once you lose your authenticity, it will be harder to find yourself.
The mask that you put on every day will become your identity, thus making it much harder to remove it.
Live the life you want.
Don’t make up excuses like ‘Oh I have to do this, cause of X’, or ‘eventually it will get better.
If you truly live authentically, you don’t need reasons to live.
Do you know why?
Cause you are already doing the things that you are supposed to. You don’t need any reasons for it other than it satisfies your soul and being.
