What do you think when you read the title? Do you think it is easy to be yourself? Why do we have the tendency to compare ourselves with others? You are probably asking yourself where I mean be asking all these questions, don’t you? Well, let me tell you my thoughts around this topic.
Be yourself is a big task in today’s world when in the social media it seems like everyone is so perfect. In today’s society many tend to act like they’re something they’re not. They create a personality that is not theirs. The society is putting a huge pressure on people in today’s world where the demands are that you should have a master degree. In Norway preferably two since master degree has gotten the value of a bachelor degree and a bachelor degree is worthless. You should make carrier and create a perfect family where your kids grow up to become more successful than you are.
What happened with just being yourself. If your talent is to cut someones hair or draw something why should you end up as an lawyer or economist? Why should you have a big family if you prefer to not have kids at all? Why should you work out hours at the gym to get that fit body when all you really want is stay healthy and run a little bit? I think you get what I mean. We have a tendency to follow what the mainstream of people are doing since they are following what the society is teaching us.
Mental illness is becoming more and more common in today’s world. There are so many that gets depressed. There is a fine line between succeeding and failing and the latter result will easily end with depression. Even the fear of failing might get you depressed.
For me as a blogger I kind of do the opposite of what the society is telling me. I don’t give a s*** about what the society says I should do since I am not pursuing it. I am pursuing my dreams and what makes me happy. I have a dream to have blogging as a full time job but if this doesn’t come true I would not just give up blogging. Life should be meaningful and that is only possible when you fill it with things that makes you happy and not what the society demands you to do.
Dare to be yourself and dare to be an original. You are unique and I want to encourage you to use your talent. You are the best version of yourself so do not intend to be someone else. That would just make you a bad copy!
