Acting against ourselves

Behaviour is often more to do with how we think others will perceive us than what we truly feel.

Yet, we are all doing the same, more worried about appearances to others than being authentic.

Being authentic is hard as we are conditioned to consider what others think and it leaves us feeling like we are in the wilderness when we don’t conform, no longer fitting in.

Mad how we condition ourselves as humans to act against our true selves to satisfy the imagined view of us by another.

It’s not the action, it’s the reaction

Action is good.

Reaction is not.

When we take action, we feel good.

When we react, we feel bad, we become the reaction, which is not the real us, it is just our mind and emotions.

Action happens now, the moment that we are alive and requires us to be present. It leads to change, it leads to an outcome, it makes a difference.

Reaction is based on the past and on future fears, things that do not exist. It leads to anger, frustration, argument, hate and negativity.

Let go, accept what is, do not become the reaction, peacefully and calmly take action.
