Maybe, some other people find it hard to be true to their own self, but for me it’s harder to pretend and be something you’re not. Maybe, being not true to yourself feels like living in a virtual world, a world that only exist on computers. My mother used to tell me that you cannot be true to others until you are true to yourself and as I grow older, I realized that she’s right and it takes courage to accept yourself.
Being true to oneself means living as your natural self. You’re not worrying about pleasing others and you don’t mind what other people might think of you. You’re living just the way you are and acting with what you believe. You’re acting in a way that you want and not how others think you should be.
Some other people find it very challenging because being true to oneself is not simply as we think. As I’ve mentioned earlier, being true takes courage and it can hurt you. Many of us now, pretend to be someone else for the sake of the others and for the sake of gaining acceptance. No one can tell you to be true to yourself except you.
Being true to oneself means accepting and being completely honest with what you feel. It means allowing the truth to flow through you and into the world. If you know your self you will find it effortless to be true to yourself. Find what works for you and makes you whole.
Being true to oneself is one of the hardest and greatest things that you can do for yourself. It is a personal choice. It’s your choice to live in integrity or out of integrity. Begin by not being afraid and allow yourself to discover how amazing you can be.
