Let’s face it. Are we afraid to just be ourselves? Afraid to let people know us as we are? Will they like me? Will I like me? Are we really open to even knowing our real selves, or have we manufactured a new me that is a constant struggle to be realized? This way of living produces too much drama, too much stress, and sets us up for disappointment and self-contempt. Perhaps we need a little help in being ourselves, the person we were meant to be and practicing self love. Let’s examine Why Being Yourself is Key to Your Happiness.
Become the Best Version of Yourself
Being yourself does not mean being indolent, non-achieving, careless and selfish. Rather it means getting to know ourselves, our innate abilities, our own dreams, and being confident in who we are. Projecting that confidence, developing the gifts we identify within, fine tuning that person, adding the gifts of love, joy, peace – and always being kind, produce the person who is not always grasping but rather connecting.
Forgiving Yourself and Others Leads to Happiness
It means forgiving yourself and making peace with others so you can be the best person you can be – the person you were meant to be. Not a copy of someone else. But the best finished product of who you really are. This will help you understand why being yourself is key to your happiness.
Encourage Yourself to Be Your Best Self
Encourage yourself when you fail. Forgive yourself when you are a lessor person than you are capable of being. Be kind to yourself when someone hurts you. Let no person shape you into being the person they need or want. Being the best you, will be the most helpful you to others.
You cannot be the best you if you beat yourself up every day. Or if you allow yourself to be trashed or rejected. Learn how to give yourself great self-care. Esteem yourself. You deserve it. Talk kindly to yourself. Be proud of your accomplishments. Identify your strengths and build on them.
Why Being Yourself is Key to Your Happiness
We must hold our heads high, remember who we are and Whose we are, and give care to ourselves – nourishing, loving, and encouraging care. Be the strong yet self-effacing person you were intended – strong in character and belief, not blown around by every wind of new teaching. Nourish the childish you to become the adult, strong in character, faith, and integrity.
Seek to be a healthy you who does not lack this essential self-love, a person who can excel in your own life, and be the strong ideal and caring helper to others.
Self-love is not selfishness and is necessary for happiness
It is caring for ourselves so that we can be strong for others, not only as caregivers, but as leaders, developing others, using our skills without being contentious, but rather content in our own skin. Being who we were intended to be. Understanding why being yourself is key to your happiness. Loving and nourishing that person that I am – the person that you are.
