Being Your Authentic Self

Feel free to be yourself.

I recently made a decision. Moreover, I prepared a personal affirmation. I gave the lyrics rhythm, and the result was the ideal tune. I couldn’t give a s**t what you think of me. I can still hear that song in my ears. Simply being myself helps me stay focused. We’re all human. We have a strong need for social acceptance. It is referred to as The Human Psychological Needs—Esteem, Belongingness, and Love Needs in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. The recognised 5-tier triangle schematic places it near the middle. Let’s be real for a moment. You share the same shame as I do. We frequently become mired in what other people think. We are under constant pressure to live up to others’ expectations. We quickly transform into something else, losing who we were to become people pleasers.

Here are the warning indicators that helped me draw the line and take the necessary steps to protect myself from other people’s influences. Just being myself right now. “So, how about you? Are you up for a serious intervention in your soul? Social media is constantly showing it to you. Numerous selfies that have all been meticulously scrutinised. a sense of obligation to compete, fit in, and match. That post ought to become viral. Are you clinging on other people’s approval in that situation? You made the wrong career choice. You give in to social pressure as well as the pressure from your family and friends. By not going after the career you know to be right, you restrict your freedom. Ever take a moment to reflect? Do I belong here?

You experience control. stifled by the voice inside of you. Out of concern that you could offend someone, you remained silent. “Are you in pain internally?” How about your obsession with worrying about what people will say or think about you? the attire you select. how you style your hair. your automobile. Where do you decide to reside? Is that an accurate portrayal of you? You’d be astonished to learn that most of the time, it’s all in your head. People are frequently too preoccupied with their own issues to care about yours. “Hell, then! What if they actually do? Are you going to let it prevent you from being who you are? The truth is that there is nothing wrong with trying to fit in and be liked.

I’m not claiming it’s right either. However, placing pressure on oneself consistently is a sign that you are not being genuine or true to yourself. These are the three easy actions I took to rediscover who I am. Try them if you like. They might assist you in developing a viable strategy.

1. Be sincere with yourself – Acknowledge and accept the pressure you experience. There is never a case for denial. You must acknowledge and accept what you feel and know if you want to evolve. This might necessitate some introspection and reflection. I experienced this firsthand. For me, it served as a wake-up call.

2. Develop a workable plan when it’s time to draw the line. You must have a strategy in place in order to succeed in anything. I came up with a statement. It serves as motivation for me to stay on course and to be authentic.

3. Stick to your game plan and the tasks you set out to complete. You can only do that to succeed in your endeavour. I make my statement into a song. In this manner, I am constantly reminded to stick to my strategy.

The best part of it all is that being authentic will make everything seem effortless.

Hello Everyone, finally published my new book “Focus” today. In this book, I took a poetic licence in considering the spiritual aspect of focus, which has rarely been done. Other books focus on the practical aspect and tell you to do this and that, but in my book, I discuss how we can find focus within ourselves without relying on an action-oriented approach. Any purchases or KDP reads will be greatly appreciated. If you like my books, do leave a review. Here’s my author page on Amazon –

        Verbally the reflection might be, “I Am who I Am”. So, yes, if your writing leads to reflection you have been authentic in your writing. Your books of poetry do that.
