10 Reasons to be True to Yourself
Your true being gives and shows what is real, important, and necessary for you. When you choose to live your life to reveal your true being, you open the world to you, you open yourself to opportunities, miracles and real relationships. You stop living your life with your mind and its borders and rights and wrongs, but you live with your heart with no faults or delusion. Just to grow within.
1. It gives you freedom.
Honesty sets you free. There are no masks to wear, no worries what others will think of you. You are true to yourself and others. You don’t make yourself live in a cage with borders and understanding. You live your life as a gift to become free and meet your true being.
2. You have true and real relationships.
When you are honest to yourself, when you don’t want to pretend to be a different person just to look good in other people’s eyes, you can have pure, real relationships with them. You don’t play a character. Your Ego is not the director of your life, but your heart is.
3. You save a lot of energy and time.
Pretending and adapting to the outer world takes a lot of energy and time. Your thoughts are running 100 miles per hour, worrying about what you should say or do to impress others. In the end you keep saying nothing and nobody can see your true being–your uniqueness.
4. You release your fears.
When you truly accept yourself–realizing your weaknesses and strength–you don’t hide, but try your best to show others your best part. Make it shine. There are no fears of failures or other’s opinions. You take each situation or moment to find out something new about yourself and go closer to your true being.
5. You live your own life.
When other people’s opinions are not important anymore, you stop spending each moment wondering how you should live to make others happy. When you choose to spend more time and energy to know yourself better, you will do anything and everything it takes to get closer to your true self. You can truly live your life.
6. You experience inner growth and change.
Realizing who you are and feeling who you want to be, you do anything to become that person. And you do it for yourself not others.
7. You love yourself and attract more love.
Love is to accept and to understand. The more you love yourself, the more love you attract from outer world.
8. You can see the light in others, and best part of them.
When you stop doing everything to hide your dark side, you stop seeing in others their dark side and you do your best to see the Light in them. No matter how deep or far it is, you know behind all those masks, there is their unique true being and you can help them believe in it.
9. You can ask forgiveness and express gratitude.
You notice things the way they really are. You see the reality and you live in it. You appreciate moments to be thankful for and you know when to ask for forgiveness. You can change from your mistakes, because they make you even more honest and give you the opportunity to grow.
10. Subtle world and God come in your being and life.
When you take off all your masks and release your fears, then you are ready to look into your true being. When there are no doubts and worries, time stops and you let God (in whatever incarnation you believe) come in your life and guide you. There is no day or moment when you can’t be yourself. It is your choice and decision, to please others or be brave, and let your best part and true being shine inside out. It is a great journey with lot of miracles and surprises. It is a journey where you can meet yourself.
