Faith: complete trust or confidence in someone or something

This article will be a lot shorter than what you may be used to reading from me. My thoughts have been in a quandary the past month and I have been in a bit of a writer's block. I did come up with an interesting topic, and though it may not be as detailed, I sincerely hope it can be thought provoking. Thoughts that have been plaguing my young, still developing mind...

How can we have confidence in ourselves when it seems that the world is constantly in turmoil? It’s important to focus on our actions and not our possessions. Our actions should be uplifting to ourselves as well as others around us. When true faith is cultivated within yourself, the amount of money you have, your social class, and your level of power doesn’t matter. We were created to live our life, not others’ lives. If we do not follow the natural current our life is attached to, we will suffer. Fighting this natural “life current” is logically, biologically, and scientifically unwise. It is unwise because we are trying to jump into someone else’s current in the hopes that we will gain everything they have that we desire. The scariest part is we can’t worry about what the outcome of our actions will be. When your conscious mind is weak, your self-conscious mind will also be weak. What do I mean by that? We need to take responsibility for our actions and not allow our mistakes establish a permanent residence in our mind...or we will drown.

"It's a hell of a responsibility to be yourself. It's much easier to be somebody else or nobody at all." ~ Sylvia Plath

Below is a list that you must go through each time you are losing faith in yourself:

  • Everyone is on a different path
  • Faith takes exercise and time, it doesn’t materialize out of nowhere.
  • Repetition makes way for faith because the brain is being exercised to revert back to these positive thoughts.
  • We cannot control others. Even if you are married you cannot control your spouse. Even if you have children, you cannot truly control them because they were destined to fulfill a destiny that is completely their own. Our thoughts control our emotions, developing healthy thoughts and habits conceive good character. Emotions are meant to be felt…just like pain.
