Less trying, more being

In times of insecurity, we find ourselves trying too hard… all for what? Trying hard to impress someone who can’t be pleased, trying to force things and fake things, and so on. It’s too much of a fight and solves nothing. There’s no peace.

But I don’t know how to live this way. It’s a real struggle. I try not to put much pressure on others but it can’t compare to the pressure I put on myself.

Anyway, I’m just trying. I’m trying not to try. I’m trying to just be. But you can’t try to be. You have to just be.

It’s tough, but I can completely accept the fact that some people won’t like me because of the true person I am. However I cannot accept someone disliking me for a false persona that comes from trying too hard, overthinking, worrying, and not staying grounded enough.

It’s about having faith in the universe, trusting it, and believing in yourself.

I just set up an appointment to fix my car, all by myself, and I thought I would sound like an idiot because I don’t really know anything about cars but I ended up sounding great like I actually knew what I was talking about. It’s a really small thing and it shouldn’t have been my first time but I’m so proud because I didn’t think I could handle it for some reason. I need to do more of these things and prove to myself that I really can do so much on my own — it feels uplifting and empowering.
