‘Why can’t I be somebody else?
Somebody who isn’t too cool to believe it’s okay to be just me’

Bleu – Somebody else.

Does anyone else feel that they try too hard every now and again? Sometimes I try to better myself, to become a ‘better person’. But, inevitably, these things don’t make me any happier. If I try to have a more ‘Zen’ attitude to things; or try to be happier for longer; or try to please myself more and others less; I end up almost feeling the opposite. Maybe the secret is not to try. Maybe just being me is ok.

‘Do or do not…there is no try’ – Yoda

And now for a couple of quotes from The Matrix which I like regarding this:

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Spoon boy: There is no spoon.

Morpheus:  Stop trying to hit me and hit me.
