Free Yourself and Be Happy

18 August, 2016

Free yourself from everything that holds you back, from toxic people, from bad influences, from everything that is making you unhappy. You have the right to free yourself from all this, and you have the right to be a completely happy person.

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by circumstance. We’re hurt by rejection and dependency, and sometimes we even feel like a slave to others. If your self-esteem is not at its highest, we have a solution for you.

“Free yourself and be happy. There’s nothing more beautiful than investing your life in your goals and dreams. Don’t look behind you, don’t hold back, and don’t waste time. Free yourself from pain and toxic emotions. Then, forgive yourself, and once you do so, remember that anything is possible for those who believe it.”

-Bernardo Stamateas-

Trapped in an invisible jail

We’ve all been trapped inside an invisible jail before. We believe these jails protect us from what other people can do to us. For example, if we’ve never been in a positive romantic relationship, we’ll try to protect ourselves and we’ll lower the bar, making us evaluate many situations as threatening that we would have evaluated differently before.

These jails limit us and make us vulnerable, even though we believe the opposite. And how could we be aware of it if we’re not free?! We’re trapped, ironically, within ourselves. So how can we free ourselves? How can we escape the jail that we created?

There are many people who take shelter in these jails, but sooner or later they get tired of it and decide to take risks again, to make mistakesIt’s scary, but when the time comes, they force themselves not to run.

I’ve been wanting to protect myself from everything and everyone, because they’ve hurt me, they’ve made me suffer. But I wasn’t aware that over time, I became trapped inside myself, without being able to escape.

Don’t be afraid to take risks. It’s normal to get hurt, and it’s normal to make mistakes. But all of this will help you learn and move forward, to get to know yourself and others a little better. If you seek protection, do so for a while, but only for a short time! Afterwards, free yourself.

The path towards liberation

Now it’s time to free yourself from everything that’s holding you back from achieving your goals, from everything that’s preventing you from finding love. We can be trapped inside so many things, so what should we really free ourselves from?

  • From feelings that make you feel worthless.
  • From depression that drowns you and keeps you from expressing how you feel.
  • From perfectionism and fears that limit you.
  • From material things, sad memories, and erroneous beliefs.
  • From everyone who you’ve been dependent on.
  • From resentment, envyand fear of losing.
  • Free yourself until you reach success, because the best is yet to come.

“Forgive others to free yourself.”

-Buddha-

There are many feelings, emotions, and even people that we should free ourselves from. People like exes who have hurt us, friends, bosses who didn’t treat us well, etc.

Are you ready to be happy?

If you’re able to free yourself from all of the above, you can be happy and live a life full of peace and harmony. But it’s not easy. Freedom involves a slow process that can be quite frustratingDon’t worry. When you have freed yourself completely, you’ll see that it wasn’t so hard.

The problem with freeing ourselves from everything that holds us back and paralyzes us is that we’ve developed a sort of attachment to these things. If we’re afraid of something, instead of facing it, we ignore it or try to separate ourselves from it. Instead of overcoming it, we let it follow us.

We have erroneous beliefs about what is really good and bad for us. Like making mistakes, for example. We need to free ourselves from the false beliefs that do nothing but make us feel bitter towards life.

Stop finding a thousand and one reasons to be unhappy. Look around you at everything you have, value it, and think of reasons to be happy.

If you’ve freed yourself, or intend to do so, happiness is right around the corner. Sometimes we’re blind to the difference between the things we need to distance ourselves from and the things we should keep with us. Free yourself so you can be happy, so you can live your life the way you really want to, and not how others tell you to.
