Fear of rejection turns into fear of not being good enough or being “different.” To please others, we learn to act. We can become something we are not.
We want to get that reward and not the punishment. We want the praise and feeling of worth. We become a copy of our parents, society and our religions. We become domesticated.
But here we are...
Punishing ourselves when we think we aren’t good enough or doing the right thing, losing our worth and eventually losing ourselves.
Rebel... defend your freedom... you are not a domesticated animal. Be yourself. Be a free thinker.
Live your life full of joy and happiness for yourself.
It took me a long time to stop measuring myself up to others expectations. I am me. I am unapologetically me.
Who are you?
