After I published the words to pressure social media put on me I received so many messages and still am. I feel a bit overwhelmed and there are too many of them to answer them all. I want to thank you all for giving me the feeling of not being alone with this problem. All your messages showed me that this is a global social problem affecting so many lives out there ... What I can say is that after this I continued to think about the pressures we put ourselves under - what to wear, what to say and when to say it, how to be, and I ended up deciding that most of our life we live a lie. Sounds dramatic, I know. But have you ever thought about ... time? Isn’t time an illusion humans invented? And oh gosh how do we let these little numbers control our lives, don’t we? We put it on our arm, on every wall and instead of deciding to be openminded, we too often find ourselves saying “there’s not enough time”.
I never was one of those people being good at making lists and following time schedules. In fact I feel caged and loose my creativity, which makes my work worse. Should I allow time to have a negative affect on my life? Shouldn’t I ban anything that keeps me from being my own best version?
So now that I already decided to have some phone/social-media-free -time each day, I also ban time itself from most of it. Not completely, but hopefully as close as I can get. I will try to do things because my body asks for them, I will try to get back in flow with my natural spirit instead of forcing my to-do-list into a 12h-plan. Wow. That was freeing. 🕊 You should try it sometime.
