Be Yourself

Being yourself can be easier said than done. While the eminent fears of not fitting in and not being accepted – in other words not being loved – prevail, being yourself is important in developing your higher self. Here are some reasons why you should be who you are.

Being accepted for who you are is a lot better than being accepted for who you are not. Masquerading as someone, who you think other people think you should be, is exhausting. You will end up putting out more energy than you would by simply being. Be happy with yourself, otherwise no one else can be happy with you.

Everyone is unique. If we were all cookie cut from the same dough mixture, life would be quite boring. We embrace our friends and loved ones with the capacity to embrace who they are. Do not cheat someone out of the luxury of knowing you and your interesting qualities. Those idiosyncrasies make you who you are, and who you are is plenty good enough.

Being rejected for who you are has its perks, too. The utmost importance is that you’ve remained true to yourself. Can you imagine the disappointment you’d feel if you spent an endless amount of time pretending to be someone other than yourself, only to be cast aside? By being you, you’ve paid loyalty to your individualism and beliefs.

A wise friend once said to me “Rejection is God’s protection.” Whether you believe in God, Buddha, the Universe or nothing, the message is the important: Being rejected means being protected from a person or situation that is not best suited for you. Welcome that and be thankful.

It’s not to say you can’t ever change. Changing yourself should be for you and no one else. It should be done in order to grow; for the greater evolution of you. Change comes from within. It comes from looking at yourself and deciding what does and what does not work for you. Changing to suit another person’s needs defeats the idea of personal growth, and personal growth is a fantastic journey.

Personal growth begins with self-acceptance. It starts with welcoming who you are and who you want to be. Once you accept yourself, you’ll find others along the path who possess a beautiful quirkiness that compliments your very own.

Only you can pave the path to your better self. And your concrete foundation is being true to you. Don’t worry what others may think because anyone who doesn’t accept you for who you are isn’t worth your time, anyway… and your time is valuable. So, go on, wave your freak flag.
