How To Stay True To Oneself
What does staying true to oneself mean? It means to love yourself unconditionally and to be whom you are meant to be. It means not sacrificing who you are to fit in. Who you are is truly always good enough.
Love for oneself should be first and foremost. When you love yourself unconditionally, it’s because you understand that you are a part of everything in the Universe that was created from love.
Gratitude helps you to connect or reconnect to the love from the Universe that manifests in so many ways. Give thanks for everything that shows up in your life. It’s there to teach you something.
How do you show this? By writing down on paper or in a journal what you’re grateful for or just by saying it out loud as often as possible.
Meditation and or prayer keeps you grounded in a hectic, fast paced and sometimes confusing world. It’s where you can gain inner peace which then moves outward.
Look at your beliefs. Ask yourself what you believe in. Do you believe in a loving Universe or one that only punishes? Beliefs are how you feel about something. Beliefs can be changed or added to. For example, do you believe that you can accomplish anything? If you don’t believe that, then you’ve created limits for yourself. However this belief can be changed to one that is limitless.
When you change your beliefs, you change yourself. You own your power.
Giving and Receiving
Learn to give and receive to stay in balance. One is not more important than the other. When you give, that comes back to you in countless ways. Accept the goodness that comes to you graciously and be thankful.
Self care is a must. Take good care of your body, mind and spirit. Feed yourself with good thoughts; read and develop your mind. For your body, exercise, sleep, nutrition, and proper diet are ways to practice good self-care.
Staying true to oneself can be hard at times. It seems like a lot to do. In the end you are worth it aren’t you?
