10 Reasons to be True to Yourself

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.

Live Your Own Life

    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.

      8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

      8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

      We’ve all got our enemies; people who take pleasure in causing us pain and misery. Sometimes, the development of an enemy is due to certain differences in your characters and events have led to that. Other times, some people end up hating you for apparently no reason at all.

      Regardless of how you got this enemy, as opposed to the paradigm of fighting fire with fire, consider the following reasons and see why you should actually appreciate your enemies. This article will show you not only how to not be bothered by your enemies, but how to actually foster love for them.

      Read on to learn the secret.

      1. It’s a practical lesson in anger management

      To be honest, your enemies are the best people to help you understand your sense of anger management. When it might be true that your enemies have a way of bringing out the worst in you as regards anger, it is also true that they can help you in your quest to have that anger managed. You can’t get truly angry at someone you love and it is only in that time when you get truly annoyed that you learn how to manage it.

      Anger management is more effective when it is in practice and not in theory

      Your enemies are like the therapists who you need, but actually don’t want. Inasmuch as you might want to hate them, they provide you an opportunity to control the anger impulse that you have.

      2. It’s an opportunity for healthy competition

      You might not know it, but your enemies make for great rivals as they help harness the competitor in you (sometimes, you might not even know or bee conversant with this competitive side until you come across an adversary). You get the right motivation to compete and this can go a long way to spur you to victory.

      However, while doing so, it is also essential that you remember not to become a worse version of yourself while competing. Working against an adversary is tricky, and you need to ensure that you don’t cause harm to yourself or your morals in the process. Healthy competition is all you need to get out of this.

      3. Their negative comments can help you make a breakthrough

      It is true that your enemies never really have much good to say about you. However, in as much as they might be talking out of a place of hate, there might be some truth to what they’re saying.

      To wit, whenever you hear something mean or nasty from an enemy, you might want to take a step back and evaluate yourself. There is a chance that what this enemy is saying is true and coming to face that fact is a major step in helping you to become a better person overall. This is another testament to the fact that enemies can be therapists in their own way.

      4. Enemies can also be powerful allies

      Loving your enemies can also mean making an effort to interact and make peace with them. In the end, if you are able to establish some common ground and patch things up, you’ll have succeeded in making another friend. And who doesn’t need friends?

      This can also help you in working with people in the long run. You get to hone your inter-personal skills, and that can be a big plus to your ledger.

      5. It gives you the ability to realize positivity

      In a multitude of negativity, a speck of positivity always seems to find its way through.

      Sometimes, a knowledge of the fact that you have enemies will also help you to focus on the many positives and good things that are in your life. A lot of times, we neglect what really matters in life. This can be due to being overly concerned with the enemies we have.

      However, it is also possible for this acknowledgement to spur you to take a step back and appreciate the goo things (and people who surround you).

      6. There might just be a misunderstanding

      Sometimes, the reason why you have an enemy might be something very innocuous. You might not have known the cause of this fractured relationship and your enemy will help complete the picture.

      Simply approaching them will help you to understand the reason for the fracture. This, in turn, can help you to work towards healing your relationship moving forward. Misunderstandings happen, and you need to be able to work around them.

      7. You learn to appreciate love as well

      A constant reminder of the fact that there are enemies will also help you not to take those who love you for granted. Love and hate are two opposing emotions and it is possible for one to momentarily overshadow the other.

      However, while you’ll always have enemies, there will also always be people who love you. These people need to be appreciated for what they do for you. Never let the hate projected to you from your enemies take the place of that.

      8. Do you really need the hate?

      The truth is that enemies bring only toxic emotions and generate bad reactions from you. If you’re truly to live a prosperous life, you can’t really be carrying all this baggage around.

      Hate is bad and you should try all you can to get rid of it. It is a well-known fact that nobody can get really far in life while carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Well, hate is the biggest form of emotional baggage there is.
