Hello everyone! Hope everyone is doing well!
This week’s post is based on this post.
It’s so interesting that we all tend to hide so much from the world. In a lot of cases, people tend to trudge on even though they feel exhausted.
This “soldier complex” tells us to march forward without hesitation, without any complaints. In a way, modern society encourages this complex because there is always more work to be done…
If this is the face we show to the world, then no one else will ever see the other side: the playful, ambitious side that runs around barefoot to feel the grass touch our feet. Or the side that screams that one song at the top of our lungs to let off some steam. Or whatever the case may be for you! 🙂
At some point, we must let the soldier rest and let our playful side out. We must also come to terms with the fact that letting the soldier rest will not cause our entire world to collapse.
I believe that in all of us, there is a child. Some of us may refuse to acknowledge this child, but it never goes away.
I dare everyone to act like a child for a day. Go out and color on the sidewalks. Go build a sand castle. Go outside and run around. Don’t let any stresses or worries overtake you.
Maybe there is a point we all reach in life in which we all decide to stop hiding our true selves. Until then, we must keep trying to move forward in the best way we know how.
Well, that’s about it from me this week. I hope you all have a fantastic week!
