Staying True To You

Are you ready to be authentic in your life,or do you want to play it safe hiding behind your self-imposed limitations? Are you ready to become more real than you ‘ve ever been? That means giving up the superficial games you play,games that keep the real you hidden. Everyone play this game but most people don’t know what they are.

Be fearlessly ORIGINAL

I know this is a widespread ailment. I have certainly worn a few masks that were tough to remove. But really let’s be sincere with ourselves. What has your acting, pretending,or playing charades achieved in your life? It’s time you strip any false images away.

*Warning: In the process of doing this,you may feel exposed, naked,and fearful. You may ask yourself, “What if I dont like what I see?”, worse even, “What if people don’t like what they see?” But does it really matter?

If it’s any comfort,most people will ultimately prefer and respect the real you. Those who don’t ,maybe those relationships are not in your best interest and should be terminated.

While an original is hard to find. It is easy to recognize.

I believe that everyone is born with unique gifts and talents. Often these talents remain hidden. A big part of life is figuring out what your gifts are and how you are suposed to use them.When this hppens,you can expect a positive surge of energy like a butterfly shedding its cocoon and preparing to fly.

Most people feel a disparity between who they are and who they think they should be. This shows up in their behavior. They put on an act,trying to look like the person they imagine the world wants to see. This causes discomfort,a discomfort centered on this fraud. Often they think it’s about being better- better educated,better looking,better dressed, better spoken. But really its a form of self-rejection.

If you walk in the footprints of others, you won’t make any of your own.

How do you perceive yourself? Are you showing up all the time or are you playing the illusion game? The illusion occurs because we think that no one else can see our pretence. Infact,most people can see right through our act. But because we are unaware of our games,we end up fooling ourselves.

Most of us are like walking billboards advertising their game. However,they are unconscious of the messagebeimg delivered. One may advertise, I’m a doormat,” but then can’t understand why others use and abuse her. Another advertises “I’m inferior,” and wonders why it is difficult to find friends.

No one who bothers about originality will ever be original whereas if you simply try to tell the truth ,you will,nine times out of ten become ORIGINAL without having noticed it.

C.S Lewis

The real you is the person you were born to be,complete with strenghts and weaknesses,talents,and frustrations, your funny little habits and the wisdom at your core. The real you is the person you were before the dramas and traumas of life changed you. Being your real self is all you ever need to be. Stop attempting to be someone you are not.
