"Always Be True To Yourself"

"Always Be True To Yourself"

Always be true to your self by doing what's right for you and what will make you happy in the end.

Now, that I know the truth, I try to make myself happy in the process of making others happy.

"Always Be True To Yourself"

To search your self and your heart and realize that you haven't been true to yourself is a very rude awakening, to deal with indeed. Through constant reading of self help books, I'm learning quite a lot about myself and how to deal with the person that I have become. Most of my life, I have been a person that like to please others and put myself on the back burner. In doing so I realized that I'm not getting out of life what I love and deserve. One day you wake up and realize, you deserve the happiness, the glam and glitter of life. Like anyone else and finally start to stand up for what you believe in. Sometimes, underlining fears stops us from voicing our opinions for fear of losing what or who we have. We have to go against the fears and take a stand or we want ever be happy with ourselves. When our intuitions is telling us to do what feels right and good, then we should follow through and not let fear make us back down.

We shouldn't let someone else is make all the decisions and call all the shots and we're just going along with the program. Even though, in your heart you don't agree with that program. We must stand firm and tell them you can no longer live like this. We have to be true to ourselves and say exactly what we feel. Although we might be afraid of losing out in the end. The truth of the matter is. If it's not meant to be, then we might lose out anyway. We will feel so much better knowing in our heart.... that we did what was right for us. We have to stop doing everything to please everyone else and start to please ourselves.

This will prevent us from going down a lonely road and feeling, simply miserable later. There is more to life than trying to please others, and we have to find the backbone to start pleasing ourselves. I'm not just not talking about in a physical manner, I'm talking about every area of our lives that need to feel good to us. I have always been the person that give-in to the situation, but also the person with unfulfilled dreams and desires. So, if this is you, the situation should be turned around in your favor. You can also reap some of the benefits of the receiver and not always be the giver of good things and get nothing in return.

At first, this might be hard to do but as you realize that you are good, worthy and deserve greater things. Than that's what you're getting for yourself. You start to get exactly what you want and desire in this life. You'll refuse to except anything less than love, acceptance, and consideration, and all of the things you deserve in life. I don't mean scraps or the hand me downs. I mean the respect, love and everything else that comes with a good relationship, that's not one-sided. Try to always be true to yourself because in doing so, you will make yourself really proud of the person you have become.

I agree Benny Faye, it's ok to want the very best for yourself as long as it's not greed. God wants his people to be happy. Living in an unhappy marriage is sad and let's face it, sometimes we make a mistake with selecting a life partner. Enjoyed your article. Thank you.

CO,

Good advise and thoughts! I found that especially as a pastor, I can't please everyone.

So I don't even try. As long as I've pleased the Lord, then I'm happy with myself. That's the only way I could get through each day.

Awesome and so true. I realized this a few years ago myself. I cannot please everyone, but it is important to please yourself and always do the right thing. Then you can truly live a life free of any baggage and guilt feelings. Besides having God be the center of it - I love my life, there are still disappointments but I am stronger to deal with them. Thank you this was great advice. Blessings!

What a truthful hub. I went through the same transition when I turned 50. I was not going to spend the last half of my life living under someone else's expectations. This included my family. It was a very freeing experience and I felt a burden had been lifted. I'm angry that I waited so long to do it. Hopefully, those younger will heed your wonderful advice.
