Are you afraid to speak your truth when you know it might be upsetting to someone else? Do you pretend to be confident when deep inside you feel insecure and unsure of yourself? Do you speak and act differently around certain people to gain their approval and acceptance?
How to Be Yourself!
When we are wearing a "mask", whether we're conscious of it or not, we feel isolated, fearful, and out of integrity because we are not allowing our true self to come out. We are hiding… And not only does this keep us from experiencing fullfillment in relationships or creating the success we're looking for in life… But we end up living in a state of internal struggle and pain. We can't possibly be truly authentic because we are molding ourselves to be the "person" that others will love, accept, and approve of.
You are molding yourself to fit others liking and this is wearing a mask. Pretending to be someone that you are not. You may not say what you want to say because of what others think. I've been reflecting on this and many people have worn mask for years and they put a lot of effort into becoming what they think others want them to be....
Just be yourself and if people like you for you they are the ones that will stick around. You cannot please everyone, you just have to please God.
How to Be Yourself!
When you are trying to please others and be the person they want you to be you won't know who are. You have to be real and you will attract real people. Don't be around a bunch of fake people because they don't know who they are as well. Be real wherever you go and not fake today and real tomorrow. It becomes a headache when you have different personalities in many places, you have to remember where you were fake or real at. Come on, put your efforts into being you the real you. Its too much headache and aggravation to try to live up to others expectations.
People are unpredictable and the reality of life is that people are only around for a season, and once that season is over they are gone. So what will you do now since that person is gone? Move forward to working on being you and not forming yourself to fit others liking.....
Being you saves you time on your life and won't make you look as older than you are.....
