And let yourself go.
Let go of all your preconceived ideas about yourself. Let go of everything you thought you were and everything you thought you weren’t. Let go of what you thought you’d never do and what you thought you would always do. Let go of your deep-seated beliefs and surprise yourself.
I never believed anyone could ever fully know someone else, not even your own self. People change all the time. Cliched as the phrase is, change is the only constant so why should people differ? People change just like the wind changes; they change all the time. You can know someone well, you can know yourself well, but you can never be certain you fully know them, and you can never be certain you fully know yourself.
I tend to let skepticism get the better of me whenever I hear someone go “Oh, but she/he’d never do that” or “Yeah, that’s exactly what he/she would do” or something of the sort. I am always wary of absolutes because how can anyone be certain of anything? Surprises abound Life and that’s how Life gets sprinkled with little moments of wonder that often slip past us, while we are oblivious to them.
