The 20-year-old American actress and pop singer-songwriter, Miley Cyrus, is encouraging young girls to meditate more and take time to discover what they really want out of life.
Miley admits she went through a confusing time in her life and recently realized that meditation has helped her discover herself. She urges other confused teenagers to follow her example.
In a recent interview on the TV show The Conversation with Amanda DeCadenet:
She explains, “Some girls that I see and I see what they want and what is the most important thing in their life, I just wanna shake them and say, ‘Wake up! The world is so much greater. Go, be by yourself, go meditate, go spend 10 minutes really looking at yourself and I don’t know if you’re gonna like it.’”
In her interview, Miley also discusses how she used to hang out with people just because they were “cool” and has had to rethink who her real friends are. She encourages girls to just be themselves and come from a place of love. She says to look inside yourself and ask, “Would I want to be friends with me?”
