      Truth symbolizes goodness, faith, honesty, sincerity, and integrity of character. Being true to your own self is like being in harmony with reality, in harmony with Nature. It is like being reconciled with things as they are and being one with the Universe. Sadly, our hectic lifestyles, peer pressure, small pleasures, and our endless passion for money have destroyed the core values of truth. Many of us believe in what we would like to believe, and do what we feel based on these beliefs, even though our thoughts and actions are miles away from the truth.

      And, to tell you the truth, we have ceased to be honest to ourselves.

      Many of us live in a world polluted with ignorance, greed and falsities. And though we may not realize it, our soul is getting a little too choked up with these untruths, all that pseudo-talk and that jazzy false pride - always seeking accolades in the eyes of others while remaining dishonest and untrue to oneself.  

      Well, charity always begins at home, so let’s put our heads together and analyze how being true to ourselves will benefit us.

      Being truthful and sincere to yourself can make you a better human being. And here is how it will help you:

      When you are true to yourself, your mind gets all steeled up. Most importantly, it has nothing to fear, no one to bow to. This is because when you are true to yourself, you always do things that are just and right. And when you do everything fair and square, you have nothing to fear.

      Being true to yourself gives you a good feel. You look at people and things without prejudice, and do unto them what you feel is right and not what they do unto you.

      When you are true to yourself, you automatically start speaking the truth - all the time. That kind of wins you respect from others - they start looking up to you and cling on to every word you say.

      Being true to yourself kind of purifies your mind and rids it of the pile of psychological junk that has collected over the years. You become more levelheaded and this in turn endears you to your family. The emotional bond you share with them only becomes stronger and hugs your entire family in a warm embrace.

      Being sincere with yourself makes you believe in yourself, and you are no longer afraid of rejection.

      Finally, you improve your health because you are away from fear, greed, jealousy, anxiety, tension, loathing and prejudice. You don’t have any reason to hate yourself, your family loves you, you are satisfied and consistent with what you do, you don’t feel guilty - and that is all that ultimately matters in life.

          I loved this post.... I tend to be true to myself and not allow others to influence me in a way that I collect their negativity. Being true to myself has allowed others to find their own path.
          I only wish that I was able to experience this in my 20’s however it is the journey that brought me to this point.

          You are a blessing....
