Inner rebellion, is about deciding to change who you are and what you do.
It's about finding confidence when you have always been shy. It's about
finding creativity when you have always been logical. It's about turning
the tide from whom you have always thought yourself to be, into being
someone you truly want to be.
At times in most of our lives we've rebelled against
For example; We wore make up when our parents told us we couldn't,
about our homework or deadlines at work, we've skipped church.
Rebellion isn't a crime in itself (unless it
breaks a law!). Rebellion is about doing what you want to do, regardless
of what other people say you should be doing.
Children vs Adults
As children rebel, they don't make excuses for their
behaviour. They don't say 'I can't do that because of mum', they just do it
because they want to.
It's easier for a child to rebel in some ways. They are still finding
their way, they are testing your boundaries and the boundaries set upon them
Yet as adults we think they are being difficult,
unreasonable and immature. Well, they are children after all. Children,
Especially teenagers don't think... ' I can't wear that what will people think',
they think 'I'm going to wear this because I want to fit in / be noticed /
be different / I like it / because I can'
Children don't think things like, 'Best not play the music too loud, the neighbours may complain', 'Can't
wear my socks two days in a row', 'Must make my bed incase a friend comes
Children are so unmarred by other peoples opinions and beliefs, that
rebellion comes easy! It's only when we say they must do things, that
What will the neighbours say...
We spend a huge part of our adult lives thinking more about
what other people think and what other people needs than our own.
Why do we think we know what other people will be thinking? The truth is, we know what we are thinking.
We believe our neighbours will judge us on what we
would judge them on. Rebellion is not caring what other people think of
you, its about doing what you feel is right for YOU and for only you.
What would happen if you just did what YOU wanted?
What it would mean to
you, and what you would feel like doing it.
If no one were to judge you, laugh at you, intimidate you,
if no one served as a boundary to you doing what you wanted to do - exactly
WHAT would you be doing right now?
We live in a society of laws and socially acceptable
behaviour, these things must be considered, so before you decide to rebel by
walking down the high street naked, be aware that you may get arrested!
However no one is stopping you from being the person you
want to be, except YOU.
Be aware of the possible consequences of your actions.
It's true, if we go against someone else's wishes we run the
risk of upsetting them.
However, in domestic situations, conforming to other people
can be just as upsetting for you.
You have to be comfortable with yourself and who you are.
So, you must consider the path which will make you feel most
If you want to say to hell with work for a week, you run the
risk of losing your job.
If you want to leave your partner, know the legal battle
If you want to do something your partner disagrees with,
talk with them.
The saying goes.... Look before you leap.
We allow others to restrict us, fear the repercussions of change.
Security, love, financial affairs, happiness... the price we pay - will it
be too high?
Yet to fear the price we pay will be high, is to then devalue yourself.
Know your confines
We need money to live, someplace to sleep, food and water. We all live each day and give these things to ourselves.
Happiness is your right.
Why don't you give that to yourself?
