Don’t be afraid to find out who you truly are. Don’t care about what others think or how they’ll react when you find yourself and act accordingly. Avoiding your true self is the thing that’ll bring you sorrow in the long run; not others’ opinions. Don’t run away from solitude.
If you know me in person, knowing how much I love Switzerland, you were probably expecting this post.
With a world full of adults acting like children, it’s obvious that we are afraid of growing up and all the struggles it will bring. But since there is no fortunate escape from it, why try to change the reality instead of accepting it?
Honestly, I don’t remember where any of these quotes first came from, but right now, they are reaching you from my little notebook of quotes.
◦ We all come from the sea, but we are not all of the sea. We, children of tides, must return to it again and again.
◦ Just because you feel it, doesn’t mean it’s there. Just because you’re scared, doesn’t mean fear exists.
You know those places that make you feel out of time & place, right? The ones that make you feel comfortable, relaxed and peaceful outside your own home.
The word lunatic comes from its Latin origins lunaticus which meant either “moonstruck” or “of the moon”. The term was first used to refer to those who had epilepsy and madness since they were thought to be caused by the moon, and to describe the mentally ill as dangerous (which was irrational, and will be another post’s topic). Then, astrologers used the term to mention neurological and psychological diseases. It is also known that Aristotle and some other philosophers whom I can’t name right now, thought that full moon and its light were connected to bipolar disorders. The light caused by full moon was seen as the main cause for people’s sleep deprivations.
I obviously use social media constantly, even to share this post. It is beneficial in many ways, joyful and fun to see a hint of other people’s lives, I’ll accept that. But everything is fun and games until you start to compare your life with those pretty images. Nowadays, we stopped using social media to socialise, we use it to lurk into people’s lives, and get jealous. Social media have become something about sociology and psychology, more than technology. If you are one of those few people who are fully satisfied with your life and do not need to compare yourself to others, I am really happy for you. But I’m not like that. keep going
