In this part of the world, Growing up is filled with a lot of No’s, Maybe’s and a few Yes.
You hardly do anything without being scolded, You get scolded for doing the right thing and the wrong thing alike. As a matter of fact, it does not matter whether you are right or wrong, Young ones are just Considered as folks who don’t know what’s right.
If you grew up in this part of the world, You probably understand more than I can explain. Growing up is just so filled with limitations.
You hear No too often, Even for things that you are sure about, you still get a No.
This might not seem important then but something is brewing up.
The mind is accustomed to what it is exposed to, Your mind can get accustomed to other people’s behavior, response and habits but there’s one thing it can never get accustomed to.
The mind rarely gets accustomed to disappointment, each time you are disappointed, the feeling is always fresh.
Disappointment is a negative feeling that the mind will always try to avoid, no matter what happens. That’s why you feel disappointed every time you are told No. In fact the word NO already holds a meaning to you based on your Upbringing.
Every time you hear a No, the mind prepares you against the next one, You will find yourself trying to avoid another No. That’s why some kids turn after seeking acceptance from their parents for too long.
Listen to me, Hearing No for too long damages your belief system.
Your mind prepares itself against another No, Building a defense mechanism on its own, one that is motivated by fear and Unbelief.
To truly live your life, You need to break free from these beliefs.
