Thoughts about being real, drop the pretense….
Just my observation of friends and even relatives who like to impress by trying to have a false image.
Borrowing some thoughts…
And do you remember those times you have struggled to impress, lived above your economic status, massaged your ego, and maintained a false image you want others to believe about you?
This kind of lifestyle sucks the energy away from you and makes you dejected with little energy to carry out the most important things in your life. It is just a clear example of poor choice and misplaced priority.
Why is it so?
Pankaj Gupta said,
‘‘It is normal as a human being to want to look good, and having a successful life; however, many indulge in these things to get approval from others be it their friends and/ or family and it can also include people that one doesn’t even know.’
Some reasons why people behave the way they do may be they feel insecure, less confident about themselves and always trying to prove a point of nothing in the real sense.
And my final thoughts…
One of the most painful types of conflict is also the easiest conflict to avoid. It is the conflict you have with yourself.
When the person inside is in conflict with the person you are on the outside, it drains your energy and damages your credibility. Yet in an instant, you can be rid of that conflict.
All you have to do is be completely honest about who you are. Drop the pretense, and you rid yourself of a heavy burden.
Stop pretending to be someone you’re not. For even if you could manage to be convincing at it, you would gain nothing of real value.
That real value lives in the authentic person you are. In your sincere and deeply felt passions you will find life’s most delightful and fulfilling treasures.
There’s no need to live in conflict with yourself for even one moment longer. Let the true you shine through, and fulfill the wonderful possibilities that are uniquely yours.
