Just Be Yourself

“It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone”

Can I ask you something? Do you know yourself?

No, I am not taking your interview but in general I am asking how well do you know your inner-self- your soul, heart and mind. I am asking about the person you are from heart, deep inside. Do you feel like your are forced to behave differently around different people and circle? Do you miss being yourself more often?

Take a deep breath, clear your mind and think. If the answer to my above questions is “YES” then I feel you need to “Be Yourself” more often. Let’s discuss some ways by following which you will eventually and with more confidence can BE YOURSELF.

Accept Yourself.

Accepting and believing in yourself is the basic and primary stage of being happy with the person who you truly are-deep down. Just don’t be afraid to be yourself and accept it with open arms because if you cannot accept your real-self then don’t expect anyone to accept you the way you are. I truly feel and believe that you should live your life the way YOU want. You are free to say and do whatever YOU want. Just don’t make excuses and accept yourself.

Never Apologize For Who You Are.

Just stop saying sorry just for being who you really are! You should never apologize for being who you really are because that harms your self-confidence and makes you vulnerable in front of others. We should never fear that people won’t like us, respect us or value us if we don’t “Fit-in” the way they want us to. Why do we fear so much? It’s just waste of energy. No not only energy but it’s also waste of LIFE, if you cannot just be happy being yourself.

Don’t Change Yourself. Improve Yourself.

The whole concept of “Don’t change yourself” took me some time to apply in my own life because like others I also used to feel somehow like an outsider but also felt that not changing myself according to others is the only way by which I can have control over my life.Well, I feel that one should not change themselves just to “FIT IN” but should change sometimes just to improve into a better person. But that small change should be in control of your will and not of others.

Never Say It’s Not Easy.

Well you and I, we both know that life itself is not easy then how can we expect that “being yourself” is going to be easy??? But, that doesn’t mean that you will give up being yourself and follow the rules made by society. You don’t need to do something which you don’t want to do. Just accept that it’s difficult not to change and move on. I am not saying not to do hard things, as if you want to achieve something in your life then you have to but I am saying not to blindly follow the path of others. Stand strong, be yourself and make your own path.

You will get what you want only when you are yourself. β€œWhen you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you and you will be happier.” You can never fake yourself to be something which you are not in the long run, and people will not respect you. Stand up and achieve your dreams being your inner-self. You are no less, God has made all of us unique so it’s fine if you stand out but it’s not okay to hide your inner self. Love and Be Yourself!

  2. Good questions to think about.

    True, sometimes we might think we Really know Our selves but maybe we do not. Becoming grounded and calming our minds all we for some inner realization and awareness.

    I used to have a problem of apologizing for who I am all the time. And as you’ve said, came out as vulnerable and a weak point to others. Learning to be you has power In it. Gives you freedom. This is a really good post. Creates awareness and inspires.

  3. Yes, this.

    There is something freeing about being yourself, about marching to my own beat and not having to pay attention to what is trendy or popular. It can be a very lonely existence sometimes, though. :\

    I thought I knew myself, but now I’m not so sure…

    1. If you are unique in your group, then this shouldn’t make you lonely because it’s cool to be a flamingo in a group of pigeons and people will respect you for that.
      Thank you so much for reading

      1. I know… I didn’t have people around me for most of my childhood… and so many of my friends have moved away in the last couple years, and the ones who are left I never see anymore because of COVID…

  4. Very insightful post. πŸ™‚

    As someone who was a people pleaser for years, this post definitely hits home.

    β€œWhen you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you and you will be happier. – Definitely my favorite part out of the whole post

    I’m still on a journey on really growing into being fully comfortable with my true self, but otherwise its a work in progress.
