Being able to adjust to a situation and to people around you is a great quality! In fact, Darwin’s theory of “the survival of the fittest” has been revised to “survival of the most adjustable.” However, don’t adjust so much to situations and people that you lose who you are and eventually end up being dominated by forces taking advantage of your accommodative nature.
Don’t build a dam around it, let the rivers run wild and they will always find their way back to the ocean, a little wiser, a little more compassionate, after tenderly shaping mountains into valleys. Eventually it is the river that remains the same and the harsh rock that is forever altered.
Our weaknesses are our strengths and our strengths are our weaknesses. Impatient people are often very efficient, efficiency often also indicates impatience. Lazy people are often very patient, but patient people can be lazy. Sensitive people have a lot of empathy, but people with a lot of empathy sometimes need comfort more than the people they are having empathy for. And so it goes on an on…
And of course this goes for our physical appearance too. Imagine if nobody felt the need to sweat away hours in a gym to obtain the perfect swimwear body. Imagine if we all just came to the beach like we were. Wouldn’t we all breathe a sigh of relief? The truth is, people who actually have the guts to do that, to admit their “imperfection” and just shrug their shoulders at it are often the ones who are perceived as being “perfect”. We love such people because they make us feel good about ourselves, they give us courage to shrug our own shoulders and meet the world as we are.
Don’t try to hide your “flaws”, make them your strengths instead. A weakness is just a strength in disguise. Be like the Lotus flower in the photo, let your “imperfections” become the trademark of your individuality, what makes you uniquely you. 😊😊
The only thing you need to do to feel loved is to let yourself feel loved, not by anyone, but in and of its own, and that is the only love that can be truly unconditional. Lock this knowledge in your heart and it will be a perpetually shining light even in the thickest darkness, like a seed covered in winter snow it will be your hope when the world is cold reminding you of who you are and of your truest nature.
Love does not need a giver or receiver to exist, nor does it need to be manifested. Love is a gift to humanity, but it does not need humanity. Love needs nothing but itself, it gives of itself to itself, yet it does not need to be received for there is no space in which it does not exist.
Your worthiness of love has nothing to do with how many people love you or how deeply loved you are. It exists entirely on its own, unneeding of anyone to acknowledge it, including yourself. It can not diminish nor increase because it is immeasurable in its immaterial infinity.
Make your oddities, your eccentricities, your little imperfections your trademark, that which makes you stand out as a unique and interesting individual, someone who draws the world’s attention and reflects it right back in the form of light.
