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.

      7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

      7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

      Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

      But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

      If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

      1. Limit the time you spend with them.

      First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

      In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

      Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

      2. Speak up for yourself.

      Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

      3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

      This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

      But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

      4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

      Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

      This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

      Why else would they be sharing this with you?

      5. Change the subject.

      When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

      Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

      6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

      Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

      I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

      You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

      Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

      7. Leave them behind.

      Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

      If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

      That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
