Be a Free Spirit

Posted on: January 1, 2011

In order to feel good about yourself, you must develop a free spirit. To develop a free spirit doesn’t necessarily mean that you will allow yourself to do exactly what you want to when you want to do it. Instead, it means that you will should do things that are in line with your beliefs and values.

Many times, you do things merely to please others. This can be because you want to belong or because you just want people to accept and love you. But yo are only fooling yourself and your inner being by doing that. You should try and raise above the needs and wants of others and assert yourselves.

To do this, you have to develop the courage to pursue what you believe in. This could mean not putting up with another person’s abuse. It could also mean asserting yourself when you have to so that another kid will know where you are coming from. But, most importantly, it means that you should strive to develop boundaries for yourself so that you don’t get sucked into another kid’s psychic mire.

It is important for all of us to raise above the fray of self-subsumption. Don’t allow yourselves to be subsumed in another person’s identity. Instead, stick up for yourself. And once you stick up for yourself, tell everyone what it is that you want and deserve.
