Staking your claim as an individual should not be an affirmation of isolation. The only danger to you in the world is you and your worst thoughts. You shield yourself not from outside dangers, but from the scope of your imagination and what you fear you might project, or create within yourself. Being in control of your thoughts and accepting them for what they are, then releasing them allows you to expand and grow in the way that you are meant to. Harbouring fear is where all the ‘trouble’ begins. Let it go, take a breath and move on.

  1. Haven’t heard that word in a long time. I think sometimes people use words without really knowing what they mean Ish. I also don’t see myself as an individual as I believe we are all connected in some way and we all have unique personalities. When I look up the word ‘individual’ it can have lots of different meanings though :

    1. I know what you mean, individual is an ambiguous term at best. There is nothing hidden or secret or closed, or exclusive as far as I’m concerned. Like you say we are connected to one another and to everything around us, so it is a non-sensical term really. It’s no different than saying unique. I think we are what ever we want to be, but connected we will remain like it or not 🙂

      1. Yup .. sometimes I don’t like that ‘connectedness’ especially if it’s with people you don’t like and you can’t imagine being part of that person and you think, Eeeeuwwwww…yuck! No never! WTF? But well, something to ponder about .. haha

    2. However, I do like the etymological meaning of individual, bit of a double bluff isn’t it, in- meaning ‘not’ and dividuis- ‘divisible’, so actually the opposite in a way to what it means in popular culture. Individual, not divisible… hmmmm, I like it… 🙂
