How Am I Being Me?

Updated on December 25, 2015

In life, we experienced something that would teach us a very important lesson. Perhaps an experience that would make us realize something great about us. Or an experience that would make us feel down yet would push us to reflect and gain wisdom in the end. With that, life was indeed filled with lessons.

Perhaps you have asked yourself why you were not as good as somebody else and would resort to the thought of inferiority. For those who were strong, it was easy for them to neglect this thought and go on with being themselves. But the weak ones would certainly become weaker until their sense of being them would be gone.

To the weak, cheers! You were not alone in this planet feeling that way. There were millions of us. ;) And we felt this way because life had something to tell us about or may be life would like to push us to be strong enough to go on and be who we are.


Honestly, it would be hard but as I contemplated the situation. I realized it was about ourselves. It was just us making ourselves weak. If others have made themselves strong then why couldn't us. It just needed enough courage from within and not minding around. If we wanted change then we should change how we thought. We should start it ourselves.

As mentioned, I have contemplated about the situation and guess what. I realized something very simple yet mostly overlooked. It was the thought that everyone of us unique to each other. We were made different individual from one individual. And it made us special individual. So there was no way of comparing.

Our uniqueness made life interesting and colorful! So by that we must CELEBRATE LIFE by simply BEING YOU!

      I like your sentiment. Finding out who we are is the key to being who we are. We live our youth with the delusion of free will and learn later in life that maybe everything that we planned for ourselves that did not work out was meant to be that way. Then we learn to take a new path that we may never have considered. Keep writing!

      @Pacesetter Abbey... I thank you for commending my post... It really made me glad because I thought nobody would notice my post. But I was wrong 'coz here you are with you nice comment.

      Regarding your comment, you are really true about it. I can relate that to what Steve Jobs said, Innovation distinguished a leader and a follower.

      The benefits of being one's self is that it promotes creativity and also brings rise to the innovation of new ideologies. Most people tend to be what they are not which limits their success in life.

      Being yourself makes other people dream of being like you
