“Esse Quam Videri — To be, rather than to seem to be”
This Latin phrase completely defines the way life should be lived! believe in yourslef
In a world full of lies, being true to yourself is the greatest gift you can ever give to yourself. Can you believe how challenging is to be yourself these days? Although being true to yourself should be the easiest thing! We tend to live a life to impress others and in that process of impressing, we almost kill our original self. We start being a liar to ourselves just for the sake of being acceptable to the outer world.
One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is being true to yourself, being true to your feelings, being honest to your soul. It’s completely fine to tell yourself that life is not easy, you are not happy; there is something that is breaking you. It’s okay to accept yourself as an emotionally weak person because this is the time when you will RISE!
The damages, the gashes are still fresh; all unhealed and raw. But let me tell you that there is only one thing that can rise you up! That is being true to yourself for that’s going to give you courage to grow up; to turn out to be who you really are. It’s time to listen to your inner voice and follow your intuition as it guides you to light.
To live an authentic life takes up lots of courage but the greatest thing you can do is to stay true to yourself and stop living life with the opinions of others. Try to act according to what you believe in and what you feel like because at the end of the day the only approval that matters is Your Own.
