This project Stand-Up Psychology showed me what it really means to be a beautiful human being. In this journey I discovered something that we all have in common and that is what it means to be a beautiful human being.
I had the chance to know people who had difficulties, sufferings, losses and they passed through those moments with tears in their eyes, strained soul,but found deep inside their heart the courage and power to move forward.
In all the moments when they felt discouraged, sad, missuderstood or abandoned help them to bring to light the most beautiful human atributes. I had the chance to discover in every person sensibility, kindnnes, finesse, and I was surprised to see their beautiful evolution,and how they did not let the hardships of life to change their mind and soul. From that moment I told to myself to start a new life. I can not change the past, but I can learn something from it.
Stand-Up Psychology,showed me a new perspective on myself ,and whenever fear will make me to step back or to give up on what I truly want, I should make only one step forward and all my existence will follow me. I was yearning for other people happiness and I was always asking myself: ,,What people do to be so happy?” , ,,What do they have and I don’t?” and slowly, with little steps but important I realized that it does not exist a prescription for happiness, and I only need to know what makes me happy, what I want from myself, what are my desires and needs, and only after that to start to build my dream!
When we have a dream, it means that we have all the resources for making it real.
Rollo May tells in his book ,,self seeking” - ,,The opposed to courage in society is not cowardice, but conformism”. The same with me, I was not a coward , I was just acting like the other people who were around me, without knowing why, or where I am going to. I accepted different people in my life, who were more or less good, but who had different values , life perceptions.I like to be a saver and I also put myself in the posture of a victim…Until I started to acquire a clearness of thinking and I start to climb step by step acting according to my new way of thinking!
After this experience I left with many thoughts, one of that was to take all of those people who controlled me and who don’t deserve me out of my life , I learned that I should leave behind the unpleasant events,to accept the constructive criticism, to learn to accept myself with good and bad.
I learned that sometimes saying, ,,NO” to others, means to tell me, ,,YES”!
