Do You Show the Real You

Updated on April 3, 2018
DDE profile image

Be yourself! Your true self tells the fact about your personality and that nobody can try to hide.

Show your trueself

It is difficult to show the real you when with family, friends, or acquaintances.

Sometimes it can take you a life-long time to figure out the real you.

In showing the real you can be a problem if individuals don't come out with themselves right away.

You don't always know who you are meant to be with.

It can take you many break ups in a relationship or many divorces to finally figure that you out.

When you are open with people in conversations your behavior can sometimes shock your company.

How would you rather be when with people?

The people you can't be yourself with can be disconnected from you.

Sometimes people don't like your company for who you really are and choose not to be friends with you.

Your manner can disgust them and make them not call you or take off their list of friends.

I show my real behavior when I am with friends and family or acquaintances, and don't think it will change me in any way to be my true self.

Showing the real me is how I have always been.

I can't pretend to be what I am not.

Connecting to people does make a difference when together, and showing your true self.

Some people hide away from their true side.

This does not give others a good impression behind the closed doors.

They tend to show who they really are, and in such cases, it can be false or dishonest with oneself.

  • Why would you want to hide form showing the real you?

You can be anything you want from a Janitor to a housekeeper whatever you are don't hide from the real you.

Don't be ashamed of who you are people live normal lives and deserve the same kind of respect.

Life for all individuals can never be the same so stop trying to compare your life with others.

Don't keep your real you hidden from the rest of the world.

If you are honest about how you are others will respect you for that person.

You will be accepted. Not everyone will accept you or respect you.

People are entitled to their own opinions but don't let others hold you back from showing the real you.

Remember, you can't change who you are but can do better and live a healthy lifestyle.

Without worrying about what others gossip about you and learn to relax and not care for the comments of others.

When you show the real you it means more than you will ever know.

I know someone a recent acquaintance she tries to be something she is not.

  • For example:

She is trying to be like me in her dressing and lifestyle, unfortunately, that is not her true-self.

My point is she is not being her true self and will never be if she continues in that manner.

Some people have issues in finding their true characters and struggle to really show their true self.

The completeness in one’s life is not often truly felt from within.

When you get older your true self can show for itself.

Some people move from one place to another in search of their happiness.

Finally, they would come to see that contentment and acceptance in themselves.

Something that they have been looking for all that time, and only to eventually find it inside of them.

People think that they are meant to be discovered from other places.

I have always been who I am and that makes me feel relaxed and calm about me.

I never once tried to be like anyone else.

There is often that seeking, and discovering of life that makes people to want to find themselves when deep down, they are hiding away.

If you want to connect with people and feel your true self you can do that by just being yourself.

I always felt clear about my life and feeling acceptance is how I knew to continue each day with happiness.

I had a confident childhood and carried that with me as I grew older. My parents were and are confident too.

The help of my confident parents got me where I am today.

My parents often praised me, and made me feel good about myself that made me feel happy and more confident.

Positive words from parents make children feel great and that increases self-esteem, especially from a young age.

It is normal for people to see their lives from a different perspective as I do.

My life growing up has been of me being myself.

I knew then as I do now my true self is most important. If others don't accept me for who truly am then I don't care.

I can't change me for the pleasure of someone else.

What is in the heart can’t be changed.

If you don't want to be you then you surely are living in denial.

  • Do you care of who knows you or not?

Appreciate life and be grateful for who you are and be your true self.

People will remember you by the famous person you were, and for that gift they received from you.

Also, for the hug you gave them, or for the smile you shared when you were with them.

The true you showed brightly when you most needed.

Understanding is very important. When you have found an understanding with each other you won't lose yourself.

Find yourself and be yourself.

You can learn from each other to be true to yourself.

In conversations, or in whatever your choice of career it is crucial to you to be confident about yourself.

Life is challenge and can be most frustrating if you hide away from the others.

One day you will see it for yourself.

You can distinguish between your true self and the ego self.

  • Do you think you can lose touch from your true self?

The true self feels solid, soft, powerful, creative and real.

Each individual can find their true self from different qualities.

Each person is unique and can have difficult moments in finding their true self.

  • Have you found your true self in love or hate?

Finding your true self can explain lots about yourself.

Don't be insecure about life that just ruins your good moments.

Be yourself no matter what and don't take to heart of what others think of you.

When you worry about what others think of you it can make your life a living hell.

The opinions of others don't bother me it is my life and I do what I like and know makes me happy.

I totally ignore what others have to say about me that make me feel greater about me.

Don't lose touch with yourself be connected to you to find your true self.

My challenges have brought me to this point of my life.

I have opened up self-awareness and that allowed me to be conscious.

I recognized my faults, from right and wrong.

I know for sure when I am my true self and when I am not.

When I feel I am not my true-self I get out of that mode immediately.

I can't easily fall into that thought of life.

Sometimes individuals make themselves feel and appear unpleasant when deep down they are not even as that.

One can dress untidily showing a false belief of themselves.

Dreams can awaken the minds of individuals to see their true self.

  • How do you feel about showing your true self?

When you focus on learning you will do your best.

Individuals will always be in search of their true self. No matter where they are, and who they are, the search goes on in finding oneself.

Be Confident with Yourself

Recognize Your Trueself

Find your Trueself

Do you think you can lose touch with your true self?

      I agree, our confidence and self-esteem are developed during our childhood. Much of our esteem comes from our childhood experiences within our homes with parents and siblings.

      Great hub Devika. When I was younger I thought I knew my true self, but as I got older I realise that was not really me. I am now comfortable with who I am, though I am a shy person and it often takes people a while to get to know me. I am very approachable and non confrontational, though I stand up for causes I believe in. thank you for this hub and making us all look within ourselves. Voted up.

      I heard it said before by a older woman that she wished she were 20 years old, and knew what she knows now. I completely understand what she meant by that.

      Being socially correct is one thing, but taking on a different personality completely in a different social setting is another. You have to be grounded in yourself. But by nature we do draw toward the company we keep for a special reason; our friends love our eccentricities, others don't appreciate them at all.

      I didn't know who I was when I was younger, but I have known for a long time now. I live by the motto, "What you see is what you get." I avoid negative people and try to enjoy my life just as I am. This is a good topic you chose for this hub.

      savvydating how nice to read a comment from you it has been a while since you have written something new. Well stated and parents do have lots to do with a child's self-esteem you made a good point thank you.''It helps when one's parents accept you as you are, but it is much more difficult when a child learns he had better pretend, or else.''

      That's great that you have always felt able to be your true self. It helps when one's parents accept you as you are, but it is much more difficult when a child learns he had better pretend, or else.

      I've had to experience rejection for being myself, but because I have such an honest nature, I can't really help it. I blurt things out and there you go. I'm suddenly unpopular. Oh well. That's life.

      I just find it easier to be forthcoming. Lying is too complicated. Consequently, I don't know how much credit I deserve for being who I am. That being said, I still manage to "fall from grace" and be as fake as the next guy from time to time. Sometimes, one gets tired of the fight it takes to be oneself. Lol!

      Nice article, DDE.
