Being real is a concept that is repeatedly taught to all of us.
“To be yourself”
In practice, being yourself is the toughest thing to do.
Admit that it is hard to get enough of yourself, even when you look in the mirror, you don’t see yourself clearly.
Because you are just striving to be someone else, you cannot see who you truly are.
In the age of social media, it is much worse.
When you notice someone on social media that inspires you, you may mimic them consciously or unconsciously in an attempt to model them.
Yet, you will always fail if you try to be someone you are not.
Even if you are successful in copying your role model, it will never be you.
It will just be another version of him or her.
We have so much on our plates that sometimes we are unable to recognize the real us.
Aim to be you.
Try to dress, behave, and think like yourself.
Be honest with yourself before asking others to be honest.
Accept yourself first if you seek acceptance from others.
You must love yourself before you can expect affection from others.
Accept your skills, weaknesses, and flaws since they are all parts of who you are.
This is how you develop into YOU.
Embrace that you-ness!
