Paul Coelho Quotes (Author of Signs and Wonders)
This Is How I Discovered The Beauty In Unbecoming Myself
Maybe it's unbecoming everything that isn't you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place. The first word that jumped out at me was unbecoming; an unraveling, a breaking down, untangling undoing and unearthing. All to strip away pretence, filters and protective armour. Reminiscing back to childhood: those days where you were freely yourself before the world told you how to be, who to be and what to do. The end result was a limited vision showed only one well-worn path.
I was raised to always be myself, not to care what others thought, and that it was on the inside not the outside that mattered most. Naive, yes, but also a wonderfully unblemished ideal. Growing up, my family did not have money to buy fancy clothes or fancy electronics, but it never mattered to me. My parents made sure that my happiness and sense of worth was not wrapped around my appearance or senseless objects. I was constantly told that I was beautiful, smart, and talented, and for the longest time I believed it. It was a slow transition from confident me to the current self-doubter and self-loather. A negative seed was planted in me as a teenager when someone told me that I should think about losing weight.
