You have a deeply complex mind that was designed to take you down the amazing path of a fulfilled life.
Somewhere in youth most people step in the way of that. As children we are often censored, shamed and taught to look outside of ourselves for validation that we are “good enough” or worthy of approval.
We begin to change ourselves for fear of criticism and isolation, and quickly learn to define our lives by ideals set by power-figures.
The problem is that as you follow guidelines and norms set outside of you, it’s easy to lose a true sense of self. You quiet your inner voice and override it so often that you can lose trust in your own choices.
This causes some people to veer off the path of alignment and into an upbringing spent pleasing and conforming to others.
You may have chosen fields of study, hobbies, sports, careers, relationships, neighborhoods, home size, types of cars and even the way you dress based on other people’s opinions.
