Stop Trying To Find Yourself

You have always been there

Image By Anthony Roache

An abstract concept. 

The self is defined many ways by different people but ultimately it’s to do with you, how you identify with yourself and least importantly how the world sees you. It can be found by taking a journey inward to the dark.

I say stop trying to find yourself because there’s never been a moment when you wasn’t yourself.

Change happens when you adapt to new situations. Yourself changes when you reach unbelievable goals and overcome unbearable pain. Living life facing forward being ready for challenges even when scared is where yourself is, waiting to shine.

Stop trying to find yourself and be yourself, when the challenge presents itself you’ll know what to do. Or maybe you won’t but you’ll be prepared for next time with a little more experience.

Your self is always there, it doesn’t need to be found it needs to be tested.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
