let us change our exterior world! ~~~ What Happens?


.
.
An extraordinary event happens and we are thrust as a hero, courageous with sterling qualities all parents desire for their children, into the limelight.
.
We are verbally praised in public, greeted by applause walking into restaurants. We are a hero, important, admired.
.
How would this impact our trauma and self worth?
.
Why all of us would be happier, develop somewhat better self image and enjoy life more.
.
Who would not like to be admired, respected, valued, recognized.
.
This certainly helps on a certain level but our happiness has been given over to how people treat us, in other words they control my happiness.
.
Will our happiness change if something happens and we are looked upon as a loser, worthless to society?
.
If we gain perspective that praise, criticism or indifference are just that, judgments, fleeting, impermanent and not even close to who we are.
.
Stop trying to find a fix, let go and be you, let it flow naturally, you are perfect, act like it.
.

    I can so relate to this because I was so painfully shy as a child, no self esteem and an ugly duckling. As I have grown older I’ve found my ‘look’ and know I am attractive, something I so longed to feel all my life, now it has almost no meaning to me. It’s not who I am. I believe in Karma – you get back what you give. No expectations, as a giver, but it just seems to happen. Relationship issues with family may not change but that does not define you either.
