Who are you?

“If you don’t know who you truly are, you’ll never know what you really want.”
― Roy T. Bennett

At some point or the other, all of us had faced this question – “Tell me something about yourself” or “How will you describe yourself?”

Do you ever sit back and  wonder who you really are? Well many of us have a constant and consistent sense of “me,” but even after that stable definition of “me”  it’s not at all uncommon hearing other people remark “I didn’t know you were like that!” or “I didn’t expect you to behave in such a way“. 

Ever thought why does it happen like that? It’s because there is no permanent answer to the definition of self. If any one will ask me “who are you?”. My answer will be “I am what I learn” and will keep on changing as I continue to learn and grow.

Don’t every try to fit in, in other’s ideal definition of “you”. By doing that you will be denying who you really are and will be forced to bury a little part of yourself deep down forever. That deep where you could no longer find the pieces that are lost.
Be brave. Express yourself. Stand tall and never look back. The more we are brave enough to express who we are, the easier it gets. How can you do that? Well, here’s a few helping tips to get you through:
  • Connect to yourself even though it’s only for few minutes
  • Express yourself without regard to its likes or dislikes by others
  • Start doing what you always wanted to do as a kid
  • Take it easy, give yourself ample of time to act on something
  • Engage with people who are like you, create a bonding that will last
  • Scribble down your random thoughts, they might be the key to your problems
  • Learn to say “No” to things that you are not comfortable with
  • Always remind yourself the importance of being you.

So, What about you? Are you growing up to be who you truly are?

  1. That is a nice self-assessment inducing post. It is good to frequently contemplate about the self, isn’t it. I particularly like: ‘Start doing what you always wanted to do as a kid’. I am doing exactly that 🙂
