Write down in which areas of your life you have to overcome these suicidal tendencies of imitation, and how you can transform them into a newborn you – one that doesn’t hide its uniqueness, but thrives on it. There is a “divine idea which each of us represents” – which is yours?
I don't think I imitate others. Maybe I have in the past I don't know. I do think however that I am myself at all times. What you see is what you get and always be yourself is my philosophy.
I don't listen to the same music as others do, I don't write in the
same manner as others do, I even don't like to go visit the same
countries as others do.
I was thinking it the other day; in my family I am pretty unique as well.
Growing up, I was brought up in a Catholic family, we went to church
every Sunday, my parents were pretty conservative and strict and
I am so not!
I turned out so very different than they were/are. I don't go to church
anymore, I feel like I'm more Buddhist than Catholic, I think so different
than my mum about a lot of things in life in general, well like a lot
of people actually.
I think I go my own way through life and there's nothing wrong with it.
I've learned a lot through some mistakes I have made but never ever
can I say I haven't been myself. Maybe sometimes I tried to be someone
who my mother wanted me to be, but failed big time the very minute I
tried it! I really can't be anyone other than myself.
Every person is unique, to be some other version of your own self is to
deny who you truly are!
