The Truth About Being Yourself

It's Not As Simple As You Might Think

By Abner GeorgePublished 2 months ago 3 min read

It’s often said that the truth shall set you free, but what if the truth doesn’t set you free? What if the truth hurts? What if the truth robs you of your self-esteem and confidence? What if your truth leaves you unable to trust those who care about you the most? The truth can be painful, but here are some truths that we all need to recognize if we want to be our best selves and share them with others along the way.

Why is it so hard to be yourself?

We live in a world where people are always comparing themselves to others. We see on social media how other people are living their lives and we think, I'm not happy with my life. But being unhappy with your life is no reason to compare yourself to others. There will always be someone richer, smarter, more attractive than you and that's okay. The only person you should be competing with is yourself. If you want to get better at something then set a personal goal and work hard to achieve it.

What are the benefits of being yourself?

There are so many benefits to being yourself. The best way to be yourself is to be true to who you are. When you're not being true to who you are, what happens? Your world starts changing and not for the better. Here are just a few of the benefits when you're being true to who you really are:

*You have peace of mind

*You feel better about yourself

*You stop fearing your future

*People in your life will respect and love you more because they see the real you

*There's no need for worry or doubt because the truth is on your side

How can you become more comfortable in your own skin?

It can be hard to be ourselves all the time. Society has a way of making us feel like we need to change, but it is important to remember that you are perfect just the way you are. There are some things that can help make being yourself easier though. Here are a few ideas for how to become more comfortable in your own skin:

-Learn about other people who have faced similar challenges and succeeded; they may have some words of wisdom for you. -Try out new hobbies or activities until you find something that really speaks to who you are and makes you happy. -Find at least one person in your life who is always supportive and will love you no matter what – this will help when those negative thoughts come around again.

What are some things you can do to make it easier to be yourself?

1. Accept who you are. This is the single most important step to being yourself, because if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will either.

2. Find your passion and pursue it with all of your might. If you're passionate about what you do, there's no need to fear failure because your determination can make up for mistakes along the way.

3. Set boundaries and stick to them, even when it gets tough or uncomfortable.

4. Don't compare yourself to others; instead compare yourself to where you were yesterday and see how much progress you've made today!

5. Be mindful of the words that come out of your mouth; the more genuine they are the better off everyone around you will be! 6.

Discovering Your True Identity

Too often, we are taught that our identity should be based on what we do, not who we are. But we were made for more than just what we do. We were created by the one who loves us most and created in his image. To explore your true identity, think about these questions:

-Who am I? -What am I like? -How have I impacted the world around me? -How can I grow as an individual and impact those around me? -What's my purpose in life?
