I don’t know. You tell me.
I believe in you, and I don’t even know you. I have no idea what kind of daily schedule you observe and I haven’t an inkling as to the nuances of your personal psychology as the day turns into night.
One thing I do know, however, is that, in many ways, you and I are not all that different. We go to bed, we sleep, we dream, we might toss and turn on occasion, we get up in the morning, sometimes feeling energized, other times less so, go about our day, whatever it might bring, eat something now and then, take care of some essential human business, and, when we can, have conversations and share moments of joy, sadness, frustration, and elation with other people.
I love to interact with other people, even, sometimes especially, with those with whom I would not normally be expected to enter into any kind of meaningful dialogue. It can get a little crazy, in a good way mind you.
But I definitely believe in the power of human interaction. When I am not in the stillness, that is to say, enjoying an extended moment of silence with myself, I seek out other people to talk about ideas with. I revel in these opportunities. There may be some small talk and syrupy gossip to wade through here and there, but eventually, if we are fortunate enough and the energy is right, we move into the serious but fun talk zone.
You might be thinking, yes, somebody told me to just believe in myself and people and my life would start making more sense and I would really take off in the world. Well, I have tried it and I am just not seeing the results I want!
I am thinking that if that is the case, the results you want, or think you want, may not be all that clear. It might be a good time (now is always a great time) to step back and refocus on what is important to you, reexamine with the most precise magnifying glass what you hold dearest in your heart.
No need to expect you’re going to be the next Anne Frank out of the gate but you owe it to yourself, and therefore everybody else, to believe again.
My recommendation: why not start by believing in the power of dynamically fluid and magnificently beautiful human interaction.
All of our inherent “flaws” can actually be transformed into strengths and charm points for the right rainy day.
Believe me. Even though, yes, you have been and continue to be very lucky, you completely deserve greatness. Then you can truly start enjoying yourself.
