WHO ARE YOU?/ SELF-REALIZATION...

According to Google, "Self Realization is the fulfillment of oneself, of the possibilities of character or personality."


Have you ever taken a minute and asked yourself... who am I !!!
Sure you are a mum, a sister, a daughter, a girlfriend, a wife, a husband, a nurse, an engineer. But the truth is, you are a wife because you are married to your husband, you are a mum because you have a child/children. You are a girlfriend because he is your boyfriend, and the list goes on. So basically everything you may come to believe you are, everything you believe yourself to be, are all dependent on someone else. So the question still stands... Who am I??...Who are you??
Without anyone or anything else, what is your identity as an individual...

When people don't have a strong sense of their own self, they easily live the way other people tell them to live. And because of this you may easily become a victim of depression. You are unhappy and may even suffer from low self-esteem.

Recently I found myself in a situation where instead of being myself, I was trying to be loyal to someone else, and I stopped myself cause it took me out of my comfort zone.. my individuality. So the fact is if you know yourself, you know your style, what you will or will not tolerate, what you are capable of. And you know what is or isn't for you.
When you know and accept who you are, other people opinion of you doesn't matter. Give a cheeky smile and move on. If your attitude or confidence bothers them. Their problem!!.
Never lower your standards to accommodate anyone. That's a sign of desperation.


Knowing your strength is the foundation of self-confidence. Likewise, knowing your weaknesses can help you to be honest with yourself and others about what you are good at. As well as you may chose to work on this or not.
Society changes daily whether it be through fashion, your working environment or social life. So as individuals its vital to stay true to ourselves, because society's values often conflict with our own.

Why is Self-realization or knowing who we are is important:

Tolerance- Basically you don't tolerate bullshit. You protect your peace.

Happiness- You will be much happier when you are able to express who you truly are. It takes too much effort to pretend to make someone happy, when you can just simply be yourself, and keep that smile on your faces and mental health in tacked.

Better decision making- When you know yourself, you are able to make better choices about everything. From small decisions like which coat you will buy to big decisions like which guy you will date or spend your life with.
Resistance of Social Pressure- When you are grounded in your values and preferences you are less likely to say yes, when you really want to say no.

Knowing yourself means listening to your own needs, it means understanding what kind of lifestyle you want and to be living and then pursuing it unapologetically.
Knowing yourself is the beginning  of your self-confidence and happiness. I mean how can you love yourself if you don't even know who YOU are!!

"You attract the right things when you have a sense of who you are"
--Amy Poehler

So to sum it all up, never lower your standards to accommodate anyone. Know who you are, your values, beliefs and morals. And most importantly don't tolerate bullshit!!

Thanks for stopping by loves
