If things are not happening the way you want them to!
If you cannot take charge of your own life!
If you constantly feel somebody must come to your rescue!
If you always end up going to astrologers!
If you are always confused and directionless!
If you are always depending on others!
If you are always more irresponsible towards your own self!
Then, for sure, the child in your mind is prominent. The feeling of being small, young, inexperienced,unexposed, immature, is stronger than the feeling of being grown up and responsible.
To lead your life with absolute responsibility towards everything in life, you need to become your ‘self’.
To become ‘self’, you have to pull your focus towards you. To stretch this completely, I would profess to become mentally or emotionally, ‘orphan’. To stretch this further, feel as if you are all alone on an island.
Now, when there is not a single chance that you can share anything with anyone, what would you do?
Think of your ‘self’. Think of your ‘own self’. That’s it!
Since childhood, you are amongst people. You are surrounded by family, friends, colleagues, well wishers. You have always found a “shoulder” not only to cry but even to shoulder your responsibilities.
You have very smartly shared everything that you belong with someone or other to avoid the responsibility. May be you have sometimes crossed to limits of ‘social morality’ to share just to fulfill ‘the crave’ to get that help from others.
You feel comfortable, therefore, with people. People around you, allow you, because they love you.
But you are the creature, you neither love your ‘self’ nor you have interest in anyone else, except that ‘smart selfish motive’ of getting rid of your own responsibilities. Therefore, you keep relationships with people.
For you, “the self-less you” is great!
Now at this stage of life, may be you may not like what I am saying! It’s quite possible that you may end up hating people like me, who would only talk to you to ask you to become your ‘self’. May be you think, it’s too late now!
Assure your ‘self’, it’s never too late! Start Now!
