Path to self discovery

Through the process of talking to many women I noticed that one thing has been standard, no matter where you’re from, no matter how old you are; getting to know yourself can be a sucky process.

But in any stressful situation you’re in, you will only get to know yourself better. Because imagine that you never have an issue in your life. No moments where you just don’t know what to do. Sounds great doesnt it? Well it’s not! How awful would a life be without having built character. Without “aha” moments. Moments where you discover how to get through/over something. A moment where you realize ‘Ok, if something like this happens again I will handle it this and that way’ or a moment where you decide that something like that will never happen again or you will never let anyone treat you a certain way ever again!

These types of situation are the worst while going through it, but most of us are okay with the fact that they happend because this is when you get to know yourself in the best and worst ways.

I think in many situations (at least in my life) the most important way of getting to know yourself is to let go of peoples opinions. People around you usually give their opinion out of love and concern but there’s also a group that just loves to judge, gossip and just enjoy the fact that you’re going through something. Mean right?! Unfortunately through experience I noticed that this happens more than we’d like to believe.

But hey let them judge, gossip and wait for your life to be in shambles. You don’t need any validation from others in my opinion. I’m not saying you can’t talk about your situation with people around you (because we all do) bu I just don’t think your goal should be to get a certain reaction from that person. Don’t let their opinion/ reaction influence the way you live your life or handle things. Tips are great and support is even better and it’s up to you if you want to do something with it. Just always stay true to yourself and find a way to be comfortable with yourself regardless of your situation. 🙂

  1. Zo waar, Mey. En het geldt niet alleen voor ons vrouwen, maar ook voor de mannen om ons heen. Hoewel vrouwen waarschijnlijk meer dan mannen met elkaar delen.
