How to be yourself

Just because someone says they don’t like something about you doesn’t mean it’s bad or you need to change it. It really depends on what it is; often it’s a matter of preference.

Change is a constant. So changing who you are over time is inevitable, and is always likely to be a good thing if you’ve stayed informed, relevant, and clued in to the world around you and have allowed your personal development to be a top priority in your life.

Even if your friends seem different, don’t hold back. Be yourself and if they don’t accept you they aren’t your real friends.

It can be highly harmful when you’re striving to “be like” someone else just to have their popularity, appearance, and attitudes rub off on you. Keep unique by keeping your perspective focused on building your strengths through the inspiration of others, not through becoming like them.

Fads and trends are a personal decision. While some people avoid them like the plague in the name of “individualism”, it doesn’t mean you’re not being yourself when you choose to follow a trend. It’s all about what you want.

Know when going with the flow is better than digging your heels in on something. Example: Sometimes it’s better to agree on going to a concert of a band you don’t like because you’ll be spending time and having fun with your friends. That’s about compromising and being respectful of others’ preferences.

Don’t say you can do something when you can’t just to please someone! This won’t help at all, and that person will just find out easily.

While trying and accepting yourself, don’t let your flaws get you down. If you can work on it and even if not, know that they make you who you are and help you define yourself. Flaws are actually a part of you, don’t be ashamed of them.

While picking out an outfit, look at yourself in your mirror. Instead of picking the bad things about how you look, pick out the good ones. This helps boost your confidence.
