Second guessing

We are experts at second guessing ourselves. Having found what we think is a winning formula, we may be just as apt to dismiss it after a night of sleep and wonder what got into us.

In matters of subjectivity, our psyches swirl in self doubt and we question everything we do and what we say. Human beings don't do well in greys especially when we are mired in analysis of the self.

Untetheting ourselves from a coordinate system we were taught to follow is tempting but we dare not do it when young. It is only after we have become weary of its demands that we finally succumb to becoming ourselves; becoming real.

It is not simple to follow our own unique paths especially when they seem to lead us away from where everyone else resides. But sometimes it's the only way.
