The things that we decide we need control our lives rather than help create them. We’ve decided that our needs are who we are, but this is not true.
Since we go through the thought of needing things in life, we take ourselves out of the question, “What have I decided that I need that keeps me lacking what I’ve decided I cannot create in my life rather than choosing it.”
People create themselves by what people need from them.
If you actually choose your reality and your life, it’s going to keep expanding and becoming greater each day. Doing this is a contribution to every person around you and you won’t have to worry about creating your life around the needs of others.
We’ve been told this lie of don’t choose what’s true for you but figure out how to fulfill other people’s needs so you’re being caring. However, choosing what’s best for you allows people to choose what’s best for them.
Ask yourself, “if I choose what was true for me today and become more of me, then would everyone else around me get greater?”
Most of us have been taught that the fulfillment of needs is the way we maintain the image of who we are, but we have to be willing to learn what’s best for us in order to have a life worth maintaining.
If you want to be needless, create a different reality, have a life that’s true for you, etc., you have to make a different choice and make choices that work for you.
To answer the question, “what’s true for me,” you really have to be vulnerable with yourself.
To do what’s true for you, you’re going to have to choose it. If you want something different you have to make a different choice.
You have to choose to be needless in order to make the right decisions for your life.
Once you stop making decisions based on what other people need, you can help those around you by being truly yourself.
