Are You Comfortable With Yourself?

It is okay to be by yourself. It is okay to live your own life in your way. If you are not comfortable living your life, if you are not comfortable being yourself, if you are not comfortable loving yourself, what are you doing to yourself?

“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.”– Aldous Huxley

Stop preparing to live your life. Your life is unique. You must be comfortable living it. Don’t apologize for living your life in your own way. Don’t! If you have been waiting for people to love you before you love yourself, you are not helping your life. You are hurting your life, your growth. Live your life. Stop waiting to live. You are not going to be here forever. You are going to die one day. Why not make your life worth living? Why not stop waiting for who is not waiting for you? Whether you are afraid to live your life or not, you are responsible for your own life. You are responsible for everything concerning you. Don’t expect too much from people. Don’t expect what you cannot give yourself from anyone. Do it for you.

If you want happiness from other people, give happiness to yourself. If you want love from other people, give love to yourself. Why? Because what you can’t do for yourself, no one can do it for you. It is your life.

If You Want To Really Live Your Life, You Must Stop Preparing To Live

Tomorrow will not change if you are not ready to take action today. Preparation is the beginning of growth, but not the end of growth. If you want to change things, prepare to succeed, not to fail. Too much preparation can lead to failure. Because success comes from knowing when to stop preparing. You cannot prepare all your life. It is time to start doing something. Don’t hide your gifts, bring them out. Don’t use preparation to delay your life. It is good to prepare, but don’t prepare forever.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Tomorrow will be like today. Life wastes itself whilst we are preparing to live.” It is time to start living. Stop preparing for what you already know. Start doing what you have trained yourself to do. Without action, preparation is useless. If you know you are not ready to go to work, why are you getting ready? You get ready, then you go. You prepare, then you act. Remember, “Knowing is not good enough; you must do. You must act. You must apply what you know.” If you want to change yourself, your life, you must act.
