It’s Time to Be Real

 For years, or perhaps, for much of our lifetime, many of us have lived our lives trying to please others, and we have forgotten how to be authentic.  We are so focused on pleasing our parents, our family, our teachers, our co-workers, our neighbors, and even strangers, that we lose ourselves.   We try so hard to fit into the norms of society, acting in all sorts of ways so people will love and accept us.  The key word here is acting, because often times, it is an act.  If you are pretending to be someone you are not, it’s time to be the real you.  Believe it or not, the world is waiting for the real you to appear.

Where to begin:  Start by being honest with yourself and do some soul searching.  This may be the hardest thing you have ever done, but it’s worth it.  Living a lie is not healthy in any way, shape, or form. And living a falsehood will only hurt you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually in the long run. 

Ask yourself these three questions:  What lie am I telling myself?  What am I hiding from?  What am I afraid of?  Come to the realization that “You are enough” and stop selling yourself short.  You don’t have to pretend to be something that you are not.  Stop buying what the world is telling you.  Simply be who you were meant to be.  Remember, you cannot be truly content and at peace being someone that you are not. And, you can’t be truly happy and fulfilled living your life for someone else.  The world needs the real you.  You were born for a reason and you have a destiny to fulfill.

This takes courage and, in many cases, a willingness to walk alone for a while.  But walking alone is not a bad thing.  This is a good time to get to know your true self and to learn to accept and love who you really are, and who you are meant to be.  And in time, you will begin to say yes to your soul and to your authentic self.  And this level of pure truth is what sets you free.

You will also find in time, that you are no longer walking alone, that according to universal laws: “like attracts like”.  A high vibration attracts another high vibration, and others will join you along this fantastic and exciting path.  You will realize that being the real you is the only way to be.
