Wouldn’t life be better if we could all just be honest, not only with one another, but also with ourselves? If we didn’t have to hide, or shy away from, those things we don’t normally allow others to see?
But, of course, there’s many reasons why we do that. Sometimes its out of fear, anxiety, or even simple arrogance. Because we don’t want others to see the side of us that breaks the ideals of perfection. Even though we all know the idea of ‘perfection’ doesn’t really exist anyway.
And that inevitably leads to us being unable to express our true identity. But isn’t that kind of sad? That we’re too afraid to show people who we really are? All because we want to protect our reputation and only show people what we think it is they might want to see.
But, in reality, people just want to know who you truly are and how you really feel.
So make sure that the person you portray to others is an accurate reflection of who you are, and tell people what they really deserve to hear. Don’t be afraid of not being perfect, or not getting the reaction you quite wanted. Because fear kills more dreams than failure ever will.
