Why You Should Always Be True To Yourself

We take on many roles throughout the course of our lives. And we’ve all been in situations where we we’re expected to act like someone we’re not.

But when this becomes a habit, losing yourself becomes all too easy. You might forget who you really are, or might feel afraid to act like your true self.

This is why learning how to be true to yourself is a skill everyone should develop. 

How Important Is Being Yourself?

You have the freedom to operate the way you want, but you must take responsibility for the choices you make and the actions you take.

-Jon Butcher, Author of Mindvalley’s Lifebook Quest

If you sometimes feel like you’re living a lie, don’t beat yourself up. We’re taught as children that we’re expected to behave in different ways depending on the circumstances.

But sometimes we can get so caught up in this process that it becomes an automatic habit. And we’re no longer able to reconnect with our true selves.

Have you ever asked yourself: what do I want to do with my life? If so, you’re not alone. And a lot of that uncertainty stems from a disconnect with who we are at our core.

If you don’t practice being yourself, you’ll be nothing more than a supporting actor in other people’s movies. You’ll lose self-respect and spend your valuable time trying to fit into other people’s perception of who you should be – instead of who you are.

Pretending to be someone you’re not is exhausting. And that’s why breaking the cycle of false selves can be incredibly liberating.

Is it easier said than done? Yes. But is it worth it? 100%.

The first thing you need to do is take full responsibility for your happiness. Shift the focus from pleasing others to pleasing yourself. What makes you happy? What makes you feel at peace?

Find the answers to these questions and start setting time aside to pursue the things that truly serve you.

You can also begin to practice putting yourself first. Believe it or not, there’s a big difference between healthy selfishness and unhealthy selfishness

Start putting yourself first. Learn how to say “no” to people and things that drain you. This will help you rebuild your self-respect, and others will respect you more for it as well.

If you’re always there for everyone, people take you for granted. So, don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and practice healthy self-care.

What does “Stay True” mean?

In a nutshell, “stay true” simply means to keep doing your thing and not let others discourage you. This is something that should be practiced on a regular basis, so make sure to check in with yourself every once in a while to see if the things you’re doing are in alignment with who you are at your core.

Your honesty towards yourself is likely to be challenged as you move through life. Build a kind of resilience that will ensure you’re true to yourself no matter what.
