BE YOU..!!

If you will ask me what is the biggest challenge in this world, I would say being honest, to have a candor behavior and to be authentic.We meet people having different genes, aspirations, expectations from you and so it is hard to be original because we want to be loved by everyone and have a great fear inside of being left alone. So, we start wearing masks one after the other hiding our true colors.

If you meet someone today, he can have exactly contradictory behavior from the one you just met yesterday. Now, how much and to what extent you will mould yourself just to please everybody around you. And at the end of the day, when you ask yourself "who you really are?", trust me, you will discover that you are a FAKE person because whatever qualities you have are just because you wanted to be obsequious. Those are not your real qualities and you are not a real YOU. That behavior of you is borrowed one, not the real one.

Now, why is there a need to be so servile and unauthentic? To be successful? To be famous? Or you are too scared of what people will think? If your answer is "yes", then I think you would want to reconsider because Bill Cosby said it very well that "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody". Success definitely does not mean to be famous and well known amongst all the people. I would say success means to emerge as original and real amongst thousands of people who consider life as a drama competition where they are the actors and the people they want to please are the judges.

"Just be yourself. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that you are" said Mandy Hale. Let people accept you the way you are and don't let yourself to be at someone's beck and call just to gain their support.There are people who love you and hate you. So respect your admirers and don't run after your critics to butter them up because they don't deserve that. Your own life will get messed if you keep on bending over backwards for everybody. This world is doing its job to mould you the way it wants, but its your choice to stick to your values strongly or to let go of them.


  1. I think being ourselves is a priviledge denied to many. Some people, wear a mask to work and forgot to take it down when their home. As time passes they are confused on their original personality. Let us be thankful if we are able to be our true self in our own privacy.

    1. Thanks Kenny Lee for your wonderful comment. Very well said. If we keep on hiding our originality,we will be confused all the time about who we really are.

  2. Being original is the biggest challenge in our life today that prepares us to tackle every problem and learn from them
