Thought for the day: Dare


"We follow people; We act as they say.
Scared of being rejected; We follow their way."

When I wrote those lines, I was at the age where peer pressure was the strongest influence.  Sometimes I gave in; sometimes I stood up for myself.  Along the years, among the lessons, one of the things I have learned is that I don’t have to be scared of rejection.  Heck, I don't even have to try to please everybody.  And if I want to accomplish something in life, I must first strongly believe in myself.  Do I have to do what others do?  No.  I will dare to be me, I will:

Do you?

  2. You bet I do :) Never had the feeling that I must "belong" in the sense of doing everything everybody else does - this is a good reminder and I like the star of the piece - you cute strawberry :)

    2. You nailed it very well. It is true, if we don’t believe in ourselves first then no one will ever will. I faced the same problems years ago. I felt, if I just follow, the trends than be myself then people would accept me more. I was wrong. I should have stood up and be myself rather than portray a person that I’m totally not.

    1. Thanks Sayali!
      This post was an indirect message for my siblings. Honestly, I hope more youngsters understand what I'm trying to convey.
