Self Discovery Journey

Life has always been a long and winding journey of self discovery. It often takes loads of courage and endurance to go through this journey. Often then not do others tend to discover more about yourself then you will able to by doing it yourself. So which category do you actually belong to?
Do you belong to the self discovery group or the group discovery group. Self discovery is often emotionally tormenting and taxing, but it is definitely the most accurate way for emotional growth as well.

It is easier to find something to fall back on rather then falling straight onto hard ground. The things to fall back on often comes in the form of friends and family. Some people will rather fall onto the ground and learn it hard by themselves then finding something to break the fall. Although self discovery is a way of learning about yourself, it also comes at a pretty hefty price. Imagine forcing your way into doing something that is obviously wrong when there are already people who have experienced it. Whats the point in mentioning this is obviously to remind people that you need to attain a certain level of maturity before one should even go into self discovery. If you believe that you are not ready for it, do listen to more experienced people and learn from their mistakes. Its only wise to be able to decide between which way to take in your life journey.

People who actually managed to embark on a self discovery journey are usually people who do not show their real emotions readily to people. The trust factor in people is always fluctuating because they tend to trust themselves more then anyone else. So if you manage to gain the little bit of trust and attention from such a person, it wil be too dumb to just let it go. The moment such a person start to doubt his own decision in putting trust on someone, it may well be too late to keep this friend close to you. Trust to a self believeing person is often in abundance within, but so scarcely shared. "A wise person is only wise if he makes the correct decision, while a dumb person is only dumb if he makes one wrong decision".

Man often think with their body, while woman think with their heart. So does anyone ever think with their brains? It will never happen unless you can calm yourself down before making any rash decisions. An emotionally inclined decision from a woman is often inaccurate if it lacks some logical analysis from the brains. You do not fall in love for the sake of falling in love, and you do not have sex with a man just because you think you love him enough to do it. Likewise a man should never have sex with a women just because his hormones is overflowing. If a person jut allow these to happen without even consulting your friends in the thick skull, who is going to bear the consequences? Does your tear glands help you solve the problem? Or does your anger come to your rescue by slaughtering whoever did it to you? So what are all these about? If you think you can get your brains involved in any of the situations above then probably you are someone mature enough to take on a self challenge. It is just a matter of time before you have to learn more about yourself, but choosing the right time is important. As for me, i think i have lost my way somewhere in the journey. Maybe its about time to do a soft reset and reassess the relationships around me before i start to have doubts about who i really am.

Something to leave you thinking. "Always start a relationship with 90% trust, and decrease it with every bad encounter. Beginning a relationship with 0% trust will leave you with nothing to gain from it." Wondering where did the 10% go for a start? Obviously nobody will be able to give anyone 100% trust. If you are already doubting yourself once in a while, then on what basis do you have to trust another person fully?
