You look at yourself through the eyes of another.
You see what they see. What they see is a reflection of how they see themselves.
You can’t see yourself. You’re caught in a tangled web of misconceptions.
But you can’t be in two places at once so you default to their line of sight.
This is where you get your self-pity and contemptuous attitude toward all of your ideas. Your potential to realize the strongest version of yourself.
The good news is that you’re always there waiting for yourself to re-merge with who you truly are.
The being that doesn’t look upon itself with the scornful eyes of others.
It’s all up to you.
The choice has to be made.
Do you continue to default to their lines of sight out of “survival?”
Or do you grow and actualize into what God intended?
