Make Your Own Kind of Music
Life is a series of lessons. As we grow up we navigate the highs and lows, often taking a path that others want us to walk, rather than living a life that is true to ourselves. We spend countless hours trying to please everyone one else and living the life they want us to live, rather than living our own truth and making our lives what it was meant to be. This doesn’t end in our adolescent years as we continue our quest to please others in our adult relationships, while putting our lives on the back burner.
At some point, we learn that it is not others music that makes our life meaningful, but the music that we make for ourselves that makes our life complete. When we learn to let go of the necessity to ensure that others’ perceptions of who we are supposed to be are fulfilled, and start to fulfill our own wants and desires, it is only then that we can truly begin to live.
One sided relationships, where only the needs of one individual are fulfilled, are unfortunate stepping stones in life’s journey. They rob us of the ability to understand our own self worth and that which we have to offer others and the world. We work so hard at fulfilling the needs of the unhealthy relationships that we are in, that we fail to see that there is a better path to a more fulfilled self. When we are able to escape the mundaneness of that existence, it is only then that we start to realize that there is much more to life than we ever realized there could be.
Life’s moments are fleeting and time passes much faster than we would like. Do we want to spend those moments making sure that everyone else’s life is the best that it can be? Or, do we find a way to make our own kind of music, do the things that make us happy, and live our life path. When we are being good to ourselves and living our truth, we create the healthiness that is required to be in good relationships that enhance our lives, rather than make life work. Accepting each other for who we are, not asking the other to be who we are not, and allowing each other to make their own kind of music, is a recipe for the kind of life we all deserve.
