A short blabbering of some random thoughts.
We are multidimensional
Often we feel the need to label ourselves, and in most cases we do so by our occupation or what we are studying.
It’s important to remember that as humans we are all multidimensional.
Yes we have our career oriented side, but we may also have a side that’s passionate about a hobby, or a side that’s dedicated to caring for family or a side that’s in love with travelling the world.
A while back I felt a bit lost about myself and needed to do something to restore some confidence. I decided to list down the many different things that I am. The longer the list grew, the more I reminded myself of how much I’ve accomplished in my life so far.
It put a few things into perspective and gave me that much needed boost.
I would most definitely recommend this to anyone else in a rut. Regardless of how few dimensions you think you have, this exercise will force you to analyse yourself and realise how much you have to offer as a person.
When people meet me, depending on the situation, they often encounter only one dimension of me. I have an internal conflict where I want to share all dimensions of me at once but I also want to hold something back, as if I’m packaging a surprise to be opened later.
I guess if people stick around for long enough, they’ll see a lot more!
If not, hopefully what they do encounter still leaves a positive mark.
Either way I shouldn’t forget what I am.
We are often put under the misconception that we have to find our best friends or life partners within the people we meet in typical life situations, such as school, work or uni.
This is just a reminder that there are over 7 billion people on the planet!
Within those 7 billion lurks your best friends, your soulmate and your family.
So don’t panic if you can’t find those special people within your local environment, they may be elsewhere.
We often forget that we’re stuck in our own bubbles, and that there are loads of other people out there. Try to imagine the bigger picture.
Bearing all of this in mind, that does not mean that you should hate or put no effort with the people within your life because you’re convinced that these are not your people. You should still try to make the most of the time you have with those people. Make the experience you have with those people a positive one. A little bit of effort can go a long way. My general moto in life is to enjoy it as much as possible in an attempt to reach fulfilment. For me that means making every experience I have as positive as possible, therefore I make an effort with everyone I encounter within different situations.
I have been lucky enough to find some of those special people in these “typical life situations”.
How do I know they’re special?
I connect with them in a way that makes their presence feel like home.
I feel comfortable around these people, I can fully be myself. My laughs around these people are genuine. Nothing is forced in my behaviour around these people. I can talk about the strange ideas and philosophical concepts that I ponder upon with these people. I feel confident and good about myself around these people.
I am GENUINELY happy around these people.
If you’ve found these people, then cherish them and maintain that bond with them regardless of your modern busy lifetyles. Friendships like these will last a lifetime.
