GIFT B AB F

You are the solution

Just imagine how many people could be the solution to our problems, but society has either influenced them to become what they were not meant to be or crushed their spirit. Work against other people's perceptions of what you should be because someone else's insecurities do not determine your destiny.

Some people can’t handle challenging their perceptions of people. So, they rather have no solution than one from you. You may have a God-given gift that has not been tapped into or sidelined because of society’s influence to fit within a role. In high school, due to societal influences, I desired to become a model or an actress. I later learned that the study of medicine was like a second language to me. I understood the concepts easily and excelled in all my math and science courses. If I had continued to follow societal influences, I could not have saved the lives I have.

We must ask ourselves why we lean towards certain disciplines and try to recognize whether society is influencing us or if we are gifted in this area. Belonging is a need for human beings, and if we see that someone that looks similar to us is accepted and praised in a certain role, we may begin to desire to receive the same praise and admiration by becoming like them.

Just imagine how many people could be the solution to our problems, but society has either influenced them to become what they were not meant to be or crushed their spirit. Work against other people’s perceptions of what you should be because someone else’s insecurities do not determine your destiny.
