It seems like today Im especially aware of my desire to be liked and acknowledged by other people. Despite my feelings sometimes, what I truly want is for my life to matter. But Im also aware that these desires have been holding me back from living authentically. Its almost like Ive been stuck in a lucid dream and now realizing that the time has come for me to cut the shit and wake up. I have to let go of the desire to be liked, because when Im not liked, I suffer, and then I suffer anyway because I forget who I even am in the process. So my goal for today is to let go completely from what other people think of me.
