How to be who you are?
You might be wondering what exactly is this blog about? I think this is one of the most important blogs that I have posted in a while.
So, what exactly is this blog about?
It’s about being what your personality is and not hiding what you really are from anyone.
You might ask, why exactly is this important?
I cannot explain enough; how important this is because each one of us has different personalities which make us stand out from the rest. Being who you do not only give you confidence but also provide you with the freedom to manoeuvre your life in the way you want it to go.
I have personally been in situations where I lost myself to the pressure from the surroundings and my peers.
There will be times when you are not confident enough to choose a path for your future. So, people do that for you. It might be your parents or your friends.
But, How and when do we get into such circumstances?
You might blame others at that time but, one thing you need to understand is everything wrong or right that happens in your life is because of you. Only you are accountable for all that’s happening in your life. If you would have been confident enough to make decisions for yourself then, such circumstances would never occur.
There are a few things that you should do in order to be connected to yourself and not lose your identity to others.
1. Be Confident
This should be a blog in itself, ‘How to be confident’ I guess. But, let’s leave that for another day.
This is one and the only definite way to be who you are. To show your inner personality to the world, you first have to be confident in yourself.
Confidence comes from within, not from the outside. You have to start trusting yourself that whatever you are doing is right and you are accountable for whatever goes wrong in your life. Start making your decisions wisely and find time for yourself each day to look back at your decisions and learn each day.
2. Don’t Limit yourself
So basically, to be the one you already are is not a big thing, right? But for most of the folks around it is difficult to understand what I am trying to say. We set standards before knowing our own potential and that’s where we restrict ourselves. Limits are not for human beings and obviously they can be positive or negative so, choose wisely and look deeper into it. There is no manual to life it’s better not to find one.
3. Find some alone time
I want to keep this point to the top but, not everyone finds their strength from some alone time. Some of us like to be around people to boost ourselves to the top. However, most of us can get benefitted by spending some time with ourselves. The time you are with your soul and your mind, it will re-energize you and will give you the clarity of mind you need to begin thinking about your own priorities and how you want to lead your life.
4. Peer pressure
This is one thing that will never let you find the strength to come out from your fears. The outside pressure created by our peers is something we all need to face.
Why exactly do we get affected by peer pressure?
The feeling of not being good enough in front of our friends or the insecurity of being left alone is what leads to this peer pressure. Yes, the people around you also make a difference but, what you can control is what matters.
Overcome this fear of peer pressure by following the above steps: Being confident and finding some alone time.
I’m sure you will find your soul, your passion and what you really are by doing these things. If there is something you would like to add then just put it in the comments section and if I feel it resonates with the topic I will surely share it with everyone.
