Most lives are a series of apologies
They are a string of compensations a person provides themself
For not living one’s true life
Think about when a man apologizes to his lover
He comes with gifts like flowers or chocolates
Is this not what you do with yourself?
Are you not constantly showing up at your own door with a present to make up for something?
The vacations, socializing, social media, weekend getaways, food, alcohol.
You tell yourself you deserve it.
What you deserve is a life free from the need of these things
What are you vacationing from? What are you weekend getawaying from?
There’s a world in that question.
For the one truly living
There would be no need for vacations, rewards, recognition, “shout outs”, or a day of splurging
Their life would be a free flowing expression
A human being operating at full song
