happy 28th birthday, daniel alan david jones! (march 12th, 1986)
A lot of things have died in me within the past few months. One of them is the need for other peoples approval for my decisions, my truth.
I have realized that no person on earth is capable of objective judgment because each and every one of us is tainted, damaged and brainwashed in some way.
It starts with our parents, our family. Then the school, friends. The society, the internet, the advertising. We make subjective connections and become slaves to patterns we see repeated around us. Then we attach our own point of view to situations we know nothing about and judge each other having a fracture of information about someone, making up the rest in our heads.
Not only are we ignorant to judge others, it is insanity to care what others think of you.
No one has the same dna, stories, heartaches, challenges, joys and thoughts as you…no matter how perfect you are, someone is gonna misread and not get you cause they’re looking at you through their own scratched lenses and layers.
It is scary to realize that there’s no one in the world that knows better whats best for you than yourself. The map is yours to draw, the story is yours to write.
We long for something bigger and wiser than ourselves to look up to, someone to give us the answers and carve out the path. The truth is - there is no absolute truth, there is no right or wrong, just endless possibilities and realities to tap into…the wave you wanna ride is yours to choose.
We’re a blink of a moment in the endless stream of energy, changing shapes. This today. That tomorrow. It is a waste of time to not make the most of your being this time around. It’s a shame to hold yourself back out of fear. What would you be doing and who would you be if you were the only human being on earth and lived without the restrictions and limitations other people project on you?
Everyone always wants to be remembered and missed.
I say fuck that. Remove the ego and fear.
Live as if you will be forgotten. Be aware of your insignificance and grateful for the gift of breath. Create yourself, have fun with it - For you, not for anyone else. No one else really cares, they’re too busy with their own being.
This understanding has made me feel very alone for a while but it’s starting to sink in and set me free now. It feels nice to step out of the prison I didn’t even realize I was in.
Live to express, not to impress.
Just do you. The world will adjust.
