Pretending you’re normal and trying to fit in with the innocents in your midst keeps you sad and negative.
Don't stigmatize your dissatisfaction or restlessness. Don't scold yourself for your feelings, but make more space for them. These sensations will lead you down a new path toward joy.
Try inviting your sad and negative self to find out why you feel this way. You won’t know what you truly want until you listen patiently to yourself. If you give it time, you'll find out what you really long for.
Sometimes, it is something about the way you've structured your days that doesn't honor the potential and countless possibilities that are stretched out before you. Or something about your anxiety has caused you to build things that restrict you. Your fears will keep you inside predictable shapes.

Inefficiency forces us to develop other traits that give us the flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances.
Leave aside the fear of new challenges. Leave aside the fear of not being the best. When you put yourself in situations where you aren't the most skilled, you learn and grow and adapt. When change comes, you will have a broader range of skills to explore new possibilities.
