To thyself be true

Judging by the title of this post,you probably think I’m gonna get deep and philosophical on you. Well let’s see.

There some moments in life when you could be doing some mundane task and you realize something so profound. No I’m not talking about an epiphany,its rarely something life-changing. Its simply a moment of clarity. When your mind is clear of life’s little frustrations,the things swimming in the back of your mind come into focus. You could be peeling potatoes,or walking the dog,or thinking about Tom Cruise’s unfortunate height. Anything.

I’m an introvert,and I’m embarrassed to say I’ve tried so many times through out my life to be that outgoing,all over the place,social person. It never worked,ever. I understand the importance of getting out of your comfort zone in some situations,and I know there’s a difference between being an introvert and being anti-social. As humans we should learn to adapt or adjust when the situation calls for it; but that does not mean become a stranger to yourself.

So this is me,I’m most comfortable in small groups of people where I never have to be the center of attention. I don’t like being put on the spot,I’m not the best at conversation and I detest small-talk. AND THAT IS OK.

These are not my “flaws” because that would imply something is wrong. This is my DNA.

So is this philosophical? No. Its a moment of clarity that attempts to make sense of this world and our place in it.

To thyself be true.

Thats just how i look at it..

  1. To thyself be true is important. If one is not true to oneself then how can one be true to others and interact with them?

    Through being true to oneself we come to know ourselves better and that helps us to interact better at a level and with people we are comfortable with.

    Peace and Shalom.
