Break free from social restriction.


No Comments

First things first. What is society?

Society is a combination of individuals. Individuals with different tastes, different ways of seeing the world, different perspectives.

Society is a beautiful thing, it is very, very diverse. Every person you will ever meet in jimi-hendrix-8150your life is unique. This is amazing in some ways but not so nice in others, I want to talk about the not so nice.

The not so nice part about society is that several individuals will want you to act in ways that please themselves, not you necessarily.

This is a basic restriction to your freedom.

If we are looking to please everyone all the time, we’ve got huge problems.

It’s important to know that there is really no correct ways to live. People will like you for some things and scorn you for others, you will never be “liked” by everyone. It’s just impossible.

This is why you must ask yourself.

What do you like most in life? Honestly. What do you do in your free time? What would you rather be doing right now?

This line of thinking is paramount.jimi-hendrix

Freedom is available to us at every moment.

There are literally billions of people in the planet. Maybe where you are at today is not your place, if you are not enjoying yourself where you are you should just simply move. Really, it’s that simple.

Not being true to what we really like is a huge mistake. Think about it. If you pretend to like things you don’t really like you are just going to keep reinforcing that type of stuff in your life.

We’ve all been there. Pretending we like some type of music we don’t really like, trying to talk about something we don’t really know anything about.

I mean, we don’t have to be running all the time  of everything we don’t like but the problem is faking we like it. It’s ok to talk with people for a moment about things that we don’t really like, but, years doing things that we really don’t like, really?

That exactly there is the problem, faking stuff so hard that we grab a mask and put it for so many years that we don’t really know who we are anymore.

The time to do and be who you want to be is now. You don’t like your group of friends? the-thinker-3good! time to find new ones.

Life is abundant. There are countless cities, billions of people, and millions of potential partners. To be unique you have to embrace yourself fully, don’t be restricted by society.

There is a tribe out there for everyone of us, but if we act and do things that don’t really resonate with who we are, how are we ever going to be found out by out tribe?

The time to be who you really are is now. Honestly. Just think about the places where you would rather be the most. There, there is your tribe. Friends and relationships can be found literally every time we are in the street, faking your identity is costing you amazing opportunities at every second.

Fuck everything that does not suit you, the right team is there, we just have to find it.

We are all guilty of this slavery-inducing act: seeking validation.71+lnM2yVAL._SL1136_

I say slavery-inducing because that is what it is. We become slaves to other people opinions and we cannot live our lives correctly and free because of this disgusting vice.

It’s not wrong to receive praise but it is how it affects you however what matters , Seneca says:

You can tell the character of every man when you see how he gives
and receives praise.

Seneca

A person that is looking for praise is ignorant. Virtue is the sole good . We cannot be free unless we come to accept that the only good we are ever going to have is  within from the very beginning (the power to act correctly, live with virtue).

The search for praise is expecting others to approve of us so we can approve ourselves. It’s just that, it is like asking for permission to be ok with ourselves and our acts (and so they become false). So, there are different ways in which we can receive praise, one is correct and the other is not. If we do it for the wrong reasons, we will feel as if we need praise, as if we need it to feel complete.

The good news is that you don’t really need it or even want it, think about it!

Why would you want something you already have yourself! It’s your opinion the one that matters as no one else rules over your life but you.

Care about people’s approval, and you will always be their prisoner.1_am3GIZPbuUdquqevVFQqUg.jpeg

– Lao Tzu

This is no easy task however. I bet you that if you post something on instagram you will be concerned of how many likes you are getting. We live in a culture of praise. Everyone is looking for applause and it has become an addiction. The sick thing about the situation is that we are looking everywhere for praise, even from people we don’t know or even like.

How mad is he who leaves the lecture-room in a happy frame of mind simply because of applause from the ignorant ! Why do you take pleasure in being
praised bv men whom you yourself cannot praise ?

Seneca

Now, Living correctly is done silently. You only need your own approval so as Seneca says:

Let philosophy be worshipped in silence.For what is baser than philosophy courting applause ? Does the sick man praise the surgeon while he is operating ?tumblr_neyqf51MMC1qmbg8bo1_500

Seneca

Stoicism is very practical, it can be practiced all the time. Amor fati, love everything that happens, live in the moment, be courageous. All this virtues are accessible to you right now and there is no need for them to be approved, they don’t seek nor need approval to be practiced , so what are you waiting for to live correctly and proudly?
