Many times we do things because they happen to be mainstream or fads. We do it to be accepted in a like-minded community we'd like to be a part of. Social media has a great way of advertising something and making it look so fun and effortless!
So... we think it's easy! It will make our lives much better and we will be happier!
Then we see everyone trying to be vegan, buying bamboo toothbrushes, talking about CBD oil, on a keto diet, meditating, doing yoga, finally realizing Earth's conditions, talking more about world ethics...
But why are we doing these things? Is it just because we think its the healthier/better option? Just because everyone else is doing it so it MUST be good, it MUST bring us happiness?
Then we start to focus so much on doing these things and ONLY these things that, with time, we give up because we've felt so restricted that eventually it is time to go back to our old ways again. Why do we go back to our old ways? Well because no one likes to feel restricted, we'd rather feel free.
Don't do things just because you're bored and think a lifestyle change will bring you happiness.
Seek for love and happiness within yourself, you will not find it anywhere else. Love is true freedom, Love has no restrictions. Be conscious of your every day lifestyle choices, yes, but more importantly be conscious of your inner emotions.
Heal your soul first and everything in your outside world will fall into place.
You can't expect to heal the world without healing yourself first ~
