Why You Should Strive to be a Nobody

Give Up Caring!

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” 
― Eleanor Roosevelt

There is nothing more freeing than to give up caring about what other people think of you or expect from you.

Some people will just thrive on categorizing and putting you in a box.

Your job is to remember that this is not for your benefit, it’s for theirs. If you are kept ‘small’ and constrained in that little box with all its sticky labels then they don’t have to feel bad about their own perceived inadequacies.

Gone with the Wind

Let your hang ups on how other people perceive you get carried away on a gentle breeze (or a tumultuous tornado — the choice is yours).

You can literally stand on your head and fart Bohemian Rhapsody and they will still see you as tiny so-and-so from school with the braids and the knobbly knees instead of the musical genius you are that would take their breath away (in more ways than one)!

Pull the labels off your box (whether you or someone else has stuck those tags on) and give up on any kind of classification whatsoever.

You’re an Amazing Little Dumpling!

You are as unique as your fingerprints!

If you label yourself you restrict the flow of life and creativity especially when you start identifying with that role.

Meet Your Cosmic Self

You are everything and nothing — infinite possibility!

What I mean by that is you can achieve anything you set your mind to (as thoughts create your experience) but without identifying with what you are creating you become ‘no-thing’ — detached and at peace.

You will only suffer when you attach yourself to what you do because eventually you will move on and then you will feel loss as your identity slips out the window.

If I could be so bold as to suggest a new mantra when you awake to each new day —

 ‘I am whatever I choose to be today’.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” ― Bernard M. Baruch

“The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.” 
― Virginia Woolf
