Breaking the mould, finding your own path, what do these things mean? And how do we even begin to assess is this really something we need to do? My question is this, do you find yourself going along with a general opinion or belief, or staying within the boundaries of the overall perspective of the group? Is there a part of you that is thinking “actually I am not sure I agree with that”, or “actually I would do that differently”, or “actually I would rather be more independent and break away from this perspective altogether”? What if you want to see what it feels like to create your own path in life, being influenced by more of your own personal beliefs and values system. How would that feel? Can you say you know what these are, and can you choose to live your life by these, rather than stick with what are considered societal norms, when they might leave you feeling stuck rather than free.

Finding your own path and living life by your own individual value system will support you in living a more genuine life. It is about trying not to stand in the shadows. It is about being willing to step out into the light and start to have a good look at what are your personal beliefs, what are the things you are passionate about, and what is your personal value system that you choose to live your life by. Knowing what these things are for you then enables you to make more informed life decisions. Which in turn enable you to live a more genuine life. This will be because you are making those important life decisions based on what feels important for you, rather than making those decisions based on how society may view those decisions.

You don’t need to be one of the crowd if you don’t want to be, that doesn’t mean you need to leave the crowd altogether, all it means is that you allow yourself the opportunity to embrace your uniqueness, get to know yourself more, and value your own individuality. Value your own emotional responses to situations, value your own perspective without second guessing it. Avoid reverting back to telling yourself to feel how other people say you should feel. Really allow yourself the time for personal reflection and personal consideration. Give yourself that gift of personal time to get to know yourself more fully. There is no one like you in this world. So embrace who you are and allow yourself to be who you are meant to be.
