Living a life that is true to who you are is fully accessible to you. It always has been. Don't say you are the exception. There are no exceptions. You may tell yourself that life is 'good enough', but what if you knew it could get a whole lot better? You are burning daylight if you're letting your life slip by when you know full well that things just aren't right. You must be willing to challenge virtually every single aspect of your life, including the reality that you may be wanting and pursuing things that simply aren't right for you. If you are consistently and repeatedly attributing events in your life to wrong causes, then there can be no doubt that you are living a fictional life. The choices you have made, and will make in your life are 100% your responsibility. Regardless of what you have come to believe, you are in control. You are the manager of your own life! You must seize every genuine characteristic that is you and allow it to take center stage in your life. If your emotions are marked by cynicism, apathy, hopelessness, and lack of optimism, it is because you have abandoned your self and what matters to you. If you want to change this, the first thing you must do is acknowledge it. Acknowledge it, then begin to move toward a new reality for yourself. Move towards cleaning up all the unfinished emotional business that is contaminating your current life and your current view of who you are. You are the most important person in your life!, and failure to fully connect with and live out your best qualities means that your sons or daughters, your husband or wife, your family and friends settle for some second-best, counterfeit you. A fictional you. Get back in the driver's seat, and reclaim your core traits, qualities, gifts, talents, needs, and desires. However deeply your individuality may be buried - no matter how lost or non-unique you feel - you are in there!
