Crushing The Obstacles to Being Yourself

“Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken” Tyler Durden

This article is written for people who wants to know how it feels like to totally be themselves. Are you this kind of people?

If you are not, just shut down your computer and go buy another new car for your 2 person household.

Still with me? Nice.

The truth is, being ourselves is very challenging in this age. A lot of “stakeholders” are trying to tell us who we are, how we should dress, how we should behave, what is the latest gadgets to use, what we should buy and consume, and even what type of person we should be dating !

Their voices and good intention in the end confuses us and instead of being helpful, they squander our precious time, attention and energy.

They rob us of our FOCUS.

Is there a way out of this mess? If there is, how do we start ?

There is a way out and it starts with YOU.

You have to first…get to know yourself.

Gandhi was right when he said my life is my message. Your whole life is your message. Your whole self is your message.

So being yourself starts with knowing yourself. And knowing yourself means being fully aware of what is your message.

The message of your life is all about what you really value in your life.

It is really about what YOU value in your life.

It is not what your parents think is right in your life no matter how good their intention are.

It is not about what the religious scholar think is compulsory for you to do to have a ticket into heaven.

It is not even about what your boyfriend or girlfriend think you should do in order to keep receiving their affections.

Because at the end of the day, when you live a life that is in line with your own values, then only you are being yourself.

You no longer have a conflict between what you feel like doing and what you think is right.

You no longer have to live a double life.

Doesn’t that sound like a life worth living?

    I think I am getting the message Aini… ;-D

  • Oh…? :)

  • I think i’m lost.

  • I am definitely further along in knowing myself than I was 4 years ago, and I feel like I am almost done, but I’ll probably need another 3 years to solidify that.

    The key to getting to know yourself is to put yourself through challenges and to force yourself above your limits. I grew a lot that way.
