Be yourself

Posted by Patrice Smith


Who are you?
We have to get to know ourselves. When we don’t know who we are, or if we are afraid to be who we are - we are betraying ourselves. We betray ourselves by then pretending to be who we think we are . Our self image is made up of our experiences, desires and other people’s ideas and expectations of us. Maintaining this false self is a betrayal of ourselves.

Take time to know yourself and be yourself.
Being yourself in a world that constantly tries to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

    So very true we are surrounded by people who think they know who they are and convince themselves to believe the lies they have come to accept as themselves. Alot of these people are rarely happy bcuz they yearn for things that they don't know they want and ascertain things and moral notions that they believe are what will make them happy then wonder why is life a constant misery to no avail.
