What if you knew that there was
nothing wrong with you?
Did you know that it is normal to have
a problem? Yes! When you have a
conversation with people, what do you
usually talk about? Do you enjoy talking
about the things that are great in your
life, the possibilities not yet discovered or
do you rather complain about the things
that do not work and all the pains you
go through and how your body is not
pretty enough and how troublesome your
Why is it this way? Because you want to
We live in a world where it is normal to
have a problem. Everybody is supposed to
have an issue.
What have you decided is your issue?
What have you decided you need to work
at, analyze and go through before you can
have the freedom and the happiness you
desire? What if there was a different possibility?
What if the lightness and ease that you
desire is waiting for you to be discovered
as soon as you allow yourself to celebrate
everything who you truly are?
Imagine not validating your friend’s
complaints anymore. Imagine being the
only one on your block who is happy and
who is not buying the point of view that
you have problems?
Are you willing to be that different?
Being normal has great value in our world.
Being different has bad reputation, too
much of it qualiﬁes you for all kinds of
different labels. Yet it is the people who
are willing to celebrate their difference
who are a major contribution to our world
Omtimes.com being the playground it truly can be!
During my years in psychiatry I would
meet countless of people with all kinds of
diagnosis. They would tell me everything
that is wrong with them because the
doctor had said that they have certain
disabilities. Talking with these people
with the point of view that there was
something wrong with them never made
sense to me. I would hear them tell me
everything they went through and yet
choosing to move forward no matter
what. Disabled? No! Highly able! What
I found was that behind every wrongess
hides a strongess waiting to be discovered.
Every label of wrongness is a capacity that
has not been acknowledged.
What is right about you that you have not
acknowledged? Psychological pain is only a resistance
against being everything you truly are!
What if you stopped resisting you and
giving you permission to be you? What a
kindness this would be to our world!
