This title of ‘ Be what you are’ may sound like yes I am always what I am .It is always easy to say yes I am actually myself not pretending to be someone else. But deep within everyday we , in all walks of our life, we pretend to be someone else . It starts from trying to impress somebody whom we think they are very close to us . We all have the fear that if they come to know our true self they may not like us. But friends, actually its the other way around, which we realize very later in our life. Our Loved ones will not like us to be someone else and will always accept us for what we are .
This habit of changing yourself starts from a relationship may be with your friend , Boyfriend, Husband, In-Laws, the list is endless…… But how long can we portray to be someone else, adjusting to their own likes and dislikes, trying to make them feel I am THE PERSON for you . Later at one point of your life you feel you have not lived your own life. You are actually living someone else life . That guilt will make your life miserable and you will burst with utmost anger which may end up hurting your loved ones.
So friends this is all I am trying to say Stop pretending to be someone else . Be what you are, no matter what , your loved ones will always be with you . They will love you for the fact that you have not lied to them by being someone else.
This ideology( if I may say so ) of ‘I am what I am ‘ should be cultivated in minds of our children . As a parent its our responsibility to tell our kids you don’t have to change yourself to impress us , your teachers , your friends . Be what you are and Be proud of that . This attitude if the child starts nourishing it form the very beginning of his / her life they will turn out to be a very Trustworthy Companion for her loved ones.
This topic of mine may sound little too plain simple but I felt the urge to share it with u all……..
This is my first post in here I feel very Proud of writing this for you all….
