There is more than one version of truth, it’s nor mine nor yours; truth is a dialogue, a balance between you and me, between who I am and who you are. Truth made of exchange.
Self-confidence implies respect. Mutual respect. To have respect, we must be aware and conscious of our actions and thoughts. We must take responsibility, without hiding behind pitiful scapegoats.
It’s not always somebody else’s fault.
It’s difficult for an unhappy man not to blame someone else, a simple truth written by Leo Tolstoy.
It’s only by being aware of our actions that we are able to escape this dead end: an awareness that goes beyond ourselves, allowing us to embrace others; a group of atoms revolving around each other, without ever invading the personal space of others. Keeping the right distance, maintaining a perfect balance.
We can only be free if we set ourselves rules, we can only have rights if we take responsibility for our obligations. It’s all about striking the balance above all the madness. As Einstein once said “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”.
