Me.

Why is it so hard to just be myself? I get more nervous about what people think of me than just relying on the fact that I have as much a right to be here as anyone else. I feel like I live my life not in reality, but behind funky glasses smeared with insecurities and a kind of mild paranoia. I’m a good guy, I mean well, I have a great family and as of this writing, we aren’t homeless yet, so what’s my deal? My family, my friends, my clients, my God all love me. I can do this. One way or another, I don’t seem to be dealing with this whole “adulthood” thing very well. What’s my deal?

    No one says you have to 'grow up', you just have to be responsible for your actions, and make 'good choices'.
    & having a child gives you a license to be silly whenever you please =}
    Rise above the insecurity & relish in the love that surrounds you.....

    Aaron Grayum = Human Being, 1st person singular of Human Being is: I Am. Nothing more to being a Human being!

    Not my words:

    When you allow things to be as they are without resisting is the key to be in the now. Allowing is being present, reacting is not. Observation and allowance and letting things go brings peace.

    Allow yourself to be as you are without resisting is the key.

    Also realize, you are not your mind. Your mind is like cable TV. There is always something on and its mostly recycled crap. We can use our mind as a tool to ponder and function but at the end of the day, its a biological machine that needs to be turned off when it is not serving a useful purpose. I recommend meditation and the act of non-think to clear yourself of your mind whenever you notice the recycled chatter. Love ya, Peace

    MK is wise and correct, although I have to say that I don't have a child and take license to be silly whenever I want too!!

    I also have to say that I feel the same way 80% of the time and need to take MK's advice as well
