Why is that we all have to do everything the same? Why is it that we all have to be alike and why is it that if we don’t do what others do and if we don’t behave like the rest of the world we are seen as being weird, strange and so on… I love when I meet with people that are not afraid to be themselves, people who are not afraid to show the world who they really are, people who are not afraid to show their real identity, their beliefs and their strong and unique personality. You know what I have noticed, and this could be best seen on Halloween. If you give people a mask, they will no longer feel the need to hide who they really are, and they will show the world their real self. Give people a mask and they will be themselves.

I am me, you are you and in this world there isn’t one single person exactly the same. We are all different, we are all precious and we are all here as part of a whole. We are all ONE and it is quite disturbing sometimes when you see people who can’t accept the differences and they want the whole world to be like they are, to do everything the way they do it and when they do it. Expand your mind a little bit people. It does not hurt at all. It does not. I love what Wayne Dyer says on this subject: “Have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing.”

When you think you know it all and when you are 100% sure that your way is the right way and you are the only one that knows the truth, it will no longer matter what others will try to tell you or show you because it will be in vain. We get to attached to our ideas, our beliefs, our point of view and it sometimes becomes impossible to let them go. People can’t stand the idea of being wrong, they simply can’t. Maybe I used to be like that years ago but I would like to believe that we are all growing, we all evolving. People, they want the whole world to change in order for them to be happy and pleased. You know what? The world doesn’t have to change in order for you to feel better about yourself, you have to EVOLVE!

For me, this is one of the saddest things we could do to ourselves. Our life here is a continual process of learning, of discovery and growth and if we believe that we know it all, then we aren’t really living. How can somebody say such a thing? How can you say that you know it all and how can you say that your way is the right and the only way? As long as we live we will be ignorants, because we can’t know it all no matter how much we learn… there will always be more out there waiting to be discovered, to be explored.

I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine and she was telling me about her aunt and her daughter, about the horrible way she is treating her and how she is pushing her daughter away from her. It breaks my heart when I hear stories like this one, it really does. How can you tell your child that he/she is stupid and they should keep their mouth shut and listen to you because you know it all. How can you do something like that to your own child?

There are parents who can’t realize what they are doing to them, they simply can’t. We all need to feel loved, we all need to feel appreciated, and if you are only telling your children that they are ugly, stupid, fat and worthless, then don’t expect to have great results. Don’t expect to have strong, happy and self confident children. If their own parents see them like that and treat them like worthless human beings, their parents who know them better than anybody else, how can they expect more from the rest of the world?

Because of people like that, sweet little and precious children aren’t really enjoying those innocent and beautiful years, they aren’t really enjoying their childhood, and they end up with low self esteem, no perspective, no vision, no dreams for the future, hating their parents and everybody around them. It is so important to encourage not only your children but everybody around you. Encourage your friends, your relatives, your spouse or whoever needs it, and believe me everybody does. It is free, no money needed, no gold, no nothing just your precious, kind and sincere words.

“The language we use to communicate with one another is like a knife. In the hands of a careful and skilled surgeon, a knife can work to do great good. But in the hands of a careless or ignorant person, a knife can cause great harm. Exactly as it is with our words.”

I love seeing people happy, it’s like I feed with that. It makes my heart sing for joy every time I see somebody smiling because of me. What can be more precious than that? So don’t be afraid to show the world your real self, your real identity. This world needs more people like that, more people who choose to leave the tribe and evolve at a higher rate. These people are those great man that changed the world and left it better than it was when they arrived, so why not be one of them? It all starts with a thought, an idea and then your whole life is changed little by little.
