Why do we have to save ourselves?
Many of us go through life without really thinking about who we are or why we’re here. We’re given a set of beliefs and values by our families, our cultures, and our societies, and we tend to just go along with them without question. But what if those beliefs and values are actually harmful? What if they’re holding you back from living a fulfilling and meaningful life?
In order to save ourselves, we sometimes have to destroy the person we were told to be. We have to let go of the things that are no longer serving us and embrace the things that make us feel alive. It’s not an easy process, but it’s one that’s essential for our growth and happiness.
Who told us to be someone else?
From the moment we are born, we are bombarded with messages telling us who we should be. We are told what is attractive and what is not, what is valuable and what is not, what is worthwhile and what is not. We internalize these messages, and they shape how we see ourselves and the world around us.
Too often, we take these messages at face value and allow them to dictate our lives. We believe that we need to changes ourselves in order to be accepted and loved. But this couldn’t be further from the truth! You are perfect just as you are. The world needs you exactly as you are.
It’s time to start living your life on your own terms. It’s time to destroy the false self that has been holding you back and step into your power. It’s time to be YOU!
How do we destroy the “me” that we were told to be?
The process of self-destruction is often a painful one. It requires us to let go of everything we’ve been told to be and to embrace the unknown. It can be a scary thing, but it’s also necessary in order to grow and become the people we’re meant to be.
Here are four steps that can help you destroy the “me” that you were told to be:
- Recognize that you’re not who you’ve been told to be.
- Accept that this isn’t who you want to be.
- Let go of the past and all of the baggage that comes with it.
- Create a new identity for yourself based on who you truly are.
By unlearning everything we were taught
In order to save myself, I must first destroy the person I was told to be. I must unlearn everything I was taught growing up. The patriarchal society we live in has done nothing but harm me and other marginalized people. It’s time to start healing by unlearning all the hurtful things we’ve been taught.
We need to unlearn the harmful messages that tell us we’re not good enough, that we’re not allowed to make mistakes, that our worth is based on our appearance and how well we perform. We need to unlearn the messages that tell us to be quiet and compliant, that our feelings and experiences don’t matter.
Unlearning is a lifelong process, but it’s essential if we want to create a more just and compassionate world. We must all do the work of unlearning our biases and assumptions, so that we can show up more fully for each other.
By listening to our intuition
In order to save ourselves, we must first destroy the image of who we were told to be. We must break free from the expectations and limitations that have been placed on us by society, and listen to our intuition. Our intuition knows what is best for us, and will guide us to our true path in life.
By following our heart
In order to live the life we truly want to live, we often have to destroy the person we were told to be. We are constantly bombarded with messages about who we should be and how we should behave. These messages come from our families, our friends, our schools, and our culture. They tell us what is acceptable and what is not, what is normal and what is not.
If we want to live a life that is true to ourselves, we need to be brave enough to break away from these influences and follow our heart. It can be a scary process, but it is also an incredibly empowering one. We all have the strength within us to forge our own path in life.
