Knowing who you are is one thing, but truly believing and living as yourself is another. With all the social conditioning in our society we sometimes forget to stay true to ourselves. We allow what others think or how they may perceive us to be affect the way we really are. So, we put on this fake act just to fit in or to be accepted. We pretend to like what others like, do what others do, think the way others think, look like what others feel we should look like, all to fit in. Don’t lose yourself out there.
You can’t attract the right people into your life when you’re pretending to be someone else. So, be yourself. If you can’t find a group whose values and consciousness matches your own, then be the source of one. Others with your same values and consciousness will be drawn to you. Trust me, there are others with your values and consciousness out there. It may take some time to find them, for they too may need to stop pretending.
