TRANSFORMATION THROUGH CONFESSION

At the age of 51, I can confidently declare that I am now more at peace within myself compared to a few years ago.

Do you know the reason behind this transformation?

Once upon a time, I was trapped in a cycle where my own thoughts were silenced and the dominance of old habits and the opinions of others reigned over me.

But what benefit did I truly gain from not freely thinking for myself?

During our childhood, we often absorb the words of adults as absolute truth, shaping our perception of the world.

Consequently, we unintentionally adopt their standards and begin to evaluate others based on these beliefs.

It’s perfectly alright, especially when your parents are guiding you in a healthier and more positive direction.

It is crucial to understand that as you mature, you become increasingly responsible and answerable for your actions.

Over the past few years, I became acutely aware of the detrimental impact my pessimistic mindset was having on my life.

Motivated by this realisation, I made a conscious decision to delve into the study of human behaviour.

I held the belief that delving into my imperfections was equivalent to confessing my wrongdoings.

I coined this concept as dissecting the depths of my thoughts.

In all honesty, most people avoid putting themselves in a position to be criticised, but I simply disregarded that concern.

My intention is to serve as a living lesson for others to glean wisdom from.

What truly tickles me is the irony of my upbringing in a devout Christian household, where I mistakenly believed I held a higher moral ground than my fellow beings, only to realize that I was just as flawed and ordinary as everyone else.

It’s not solely our actions that define us, but rather our mindset and the very essence of our thoughts.

Merely lacking a prison record does not absolve someone from having committed an offence, whether it be in their actions or thoughts.

Today, I proudly embrace discussing my mental health journey and the imperfections that exist within my life.

I am a transparent book, ready to share my story.

I am filled with gratitude when I have the opportunity to assist even a single individual.

From an early age, we are instilled with the notion of keeping our personal matters private.

However, if I am compelled to be deceitful, there would be absolutely no purpose in divulging any information whatsoever.

While I may not possess the qualities of a saint, I strive to be the best version of myself and respect others’ autonomy.

I firmly believe that individuals are responsible for their own actions, and I refrain from interfering in their affairs.

I have a strong aversion to being dictated to, as I firmly believe in granting others the freedom to make their own choices.

Instead, I aim to inspire you through my insightful words, urging you to embark on a journey of self-discovery and improvement.

Embrace life wholeheartedly and strive to extract the utmost joy and fulfilment from every moment you encounter.

Liberate yourself from the shackles that hinder your true self-expression.

Embrace the radiant power of a positive mindset and refuse to grant others the authority to dictate your thoughts and emotions.

MY DECLARATION

“ I will forever embrace my true self, expressing my thoughts with an unwavering voice and remaining steadfast in my beliefs. I am determined to remain steadfast on my journey and never let materialism divert me from my true purpose.”
