Virtue of being yourself
Ever thought how it feels when you act as someone else or try to pose as a different person for a while in situations where you feel you would be noticed by doing such acts!
What is the reason for a person to imitate or copy another or behave in a different manner than his own?
The insecurity of losing one‘s identity, the complex of being inferior to another one often leads to such a disastrous behavior. The artificial disposition that shrouds the true inner self often gets sometimes so dominating that it indeed forgets that it is just an imposition for a while.
The real self is lost in the way of posing as another one. The shell outside becomes so artificial that it neither allows anyone to penetrate inside nor it gives a true reflection of self. In this process lot many relations, friendships, acquaintances get lost for the rough or so called unnatural exterior.
Sometimes for the sake of being too good, sometimes for the reason of not allowing anyone to intrude through, the contrived usually feels happy initially for succeeding in his/her mission, but later on when the circumstances change, when the time comes to reveal hi true self, nobody believes his real behavior. For everyone is already habituated with the early manner of behavior, the contradiction makes them confused and people often wonder which one is true!
The nature or the wish to be your true self depends on the volition of your thoughts and the conviction in self. Self confidence and faith in self does not allow at anytime behaving as someone different. You talk with your conscience in a way to know which the best option of reaction is or disposition. The heart speaks out and you listen. The way of communicating with one’s conscience leads to greater success as there is neither chance of being an impostor nor any fear of crumbling the outside created wall.
The virtue of being your true self is a rare one and is developed by believing in self. The surroundings do not change the attitude of a person neither the stature due to which an inherent glow is always there in the persona which tends to attract everyone. The sparkle of the eyes speaks for itself, whether a person is being himself or trying to pose as eyes speak the truth without saying.
When one ceases to fear the results or the outcomes of anything and feels confident about the capability of self and is contended about his action then the virtue of being yourself shines and graces the individual taking him miles on his path chosen.
