You Are Who You Are

The person for whom this post is dedicated for, would know what these words mean.

Listen, Chi.

Living this life requires nothing but simple common sense. But  living the life that you want requires bravery.

Like Murakami said, no matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves. That’s all.

You won’t change even for the ones that you love. Are you going to change for those that you hate? Think about that.

And consider this, even the world’s most precious, most celebrated piece of art has its haters. Even the most beautiful, the most kind, the most giving. No matter who you are, what you do.

So be who you are. And let them be who they are.

Because the kindest thing you can do to yourself is to give it permission to live life with reckless abandon.

  1. The Person Who Knows What The Words Mean

    Thank you for your comforting thoughts. I will draw strength from each word and try to ride this storm with braveness in my heart. After all, what does not kill you can only make you stronger.

    Every darkest night, has a dawning day.
