Paint your life in bright colors, act natural
As adults, we take children for what they are: fresh and naïve characters with their own understanding of the world and without any idea of what adulthood has in store for them. We accept their silly shenanigans of walking funny whenever they feel like, talking their minds without being judgmental and accepting other people for who they are.
At a closer look, if they were adults, they would definitely be the ones we would like to hang with the most. They would be the hip people that you always call first when throwing a party. And still, as we grow up, we forget this wonderful way of embracing the world and expressing our own inner selves in a natural way.
Society has made a habit out of labeling every behavior that escapes the usual rules of conformity. If a person is living in a positive and optimistic manner, then he is the gullible kind. If someone is a bit introverted and harder to reach emotionally, then that person is a depressed freak probably on the brink of developing a bipolar disorder. We tend to analyze and classify other people from the second we meet them, when instead we should let nature take its course and let us discover them as a whole new universe of feelings, experiences and ideas.
Every person is a journey on its own and it is up to you to jump onboard and see where it takes you. On the other hand, you are a special shuttle yourself that can accumulate experiences, stories and thoughts and later share them with whoever wants to discover the world that you have created. Do not let your universe become a bleak swamp of conformity and an endless number of respected rules and boundaries. At the end of the day, you do not want to be the person with a black and white journey but the one who has had their life painted in a complete, natural spectrum of all the colors in the world.
