Outgrowing people around you

I know many of you are with me on this one. You’re intelligent and ever-growing people and you try to find ways to better yourself for the sake of a happier life and deeper connections with the world and people around you. You’re highly conscious.

So that’s what you do. You invest the majority of your time on activities that will add value to your life, minding your own business, you’re aware of most things you do, you try not to waste your precious time.

Without knowing, you’re growing, blooming, getting stronger, wiser, humbler. You don’t always realize it, as these changes happen slowly and gradually but one day you come across someone you hadn’t seen in some time and that’s where you see that even growth has a bittersweet taste.

Even with people you still love, now you can’t connect on any level. You outgrew them. You’re not who you used to be and they stayed the same.

“Do you want to fit in, or do you want to embark on the lonely pursuit of greatness?” – Ray Allen

At this moment, I’m struggling to live with my sister. We share a bedroom and a bathroom and all the spaces in our apartment and her world revolves around studying, clothes, hair, makeup and crappy TV and I can’t at all relate as there’s nothing else. Sometimes this can be very frustrating.

However, this should not be a setback as you’re on this path for a reason and that reason should be the directrice of your every thought and action.

Personally, what I do if I’m sad or annoyed or angry is I breathe deeply, count to 5 and refocus. And then I go on to where I’m going.

“We always arrive where we’re awaited.” – José Saramago (portuguese writer)
