Why do we strive for a better life

A “better” life based on the standards of…

Society

The Media

Traditions

Why are we afraid to explore who we REALLY are

Regardless of what that may look like to others

Is it because we were taught to “fit in”

Is it because we are often teased for being “different”

What even makes different “unacceptable”

Who defines “unacceptable”

Who defines “acceptable”

Why can’t we just be

What our soul calls us to be

To do

As long as our intentions are pure

As long as it feels good within

As long as we do not harm anyone in the process

Why can’t we just live a fulfilling life

The one we are all destined to live

One which is not dependent on the fears of what another may think

Or say

A life that makes our heart truly smile

Inside out

Outside in

A happy life with no end

Why does this seem so foreign

Why does it seem so far away

If we do find it

Will it even stay

How do we strive for a better life

A life that feels just right

Despite

What it looks like from the outside
