What does this really mean and why should you do it?
Being true to yourself is about recognising what you are really about, understanding what makes you tick and what drives you forward. There’s a process and a timeframe involved in getting to know the person you are. You find yourself discovering new facets of yourself if you allow yourself the time to reflect and if you take on new experiences.
But it is not a clear straight path. Cliched as it seems that there is only one you around, it makes perfect sense to create a better version of who you are than to try to recreate yourself in the likeness of someone else. Which some of us may be inclined to consider, if we see certain aspects of other people’s character or personality as favourable.
Being true to yourself is about battling the demons within, embracing what you know you want to do, even if it is hard or there is no one around to help you make sense of the journey you need to make.
Why should you do it?
1. You owe it to yourself.
2. You will regret it if you don’t.
3. It can be a wonderful journey if you let it.
