The term “Be Yourself” is one of the commonly used terms. Especially when there are situations of competitions, you believe, or your friends motivate you by saying you are different, you are your own self. So just be yourself. Yes, you should always be yourself. Not being yourself means you are trying to copy someone or trying to be like someone. Be it your interview in a company or your first day, anyone who favors you will repeatedly say this phrase. But there’s some confusion here. There are situations when you like someone, you like his attitude, and you try to be like that person. Does that mean it is wrong? To answer this question, it is imperative first to understand the meaning of the term “be yourself.”
To give a better understanding of the term, pre-eminently try to find out what does not being yourself mean. It actually means you are trying to copy someone. You try to act fake. You aren’t the actual person you are by heart. Your face expressions do not say what your heart says. Instead, you play your life with your mind. While you are not acting like what you are, you tend to look odd, your behavior gets wrong, and you no more look like a genuine person. So, what would be the opposite situation? That’s being yourself.
Being yourself makes you get rid of tensions. Being fake is pretty hard. Some or the other point in life will get you look like what you actually are. A real face cannot be hidden long. Thus, it is always better to be yourself.
If you aren’t yourself, it shows your lack of confidence. You do not trust yourself. You admire others more than yourself which is pretty wrong. When one cannot respect their own identity, they cannot expect the society to respect them. Self-respect is above all.
Being yourself encourages you to be something good in life. When you have accepted yourself the way you are, you tend to become your own motivation. This motivation and being in your own identity is the prime requirement if you want to succeed in life.
