SIGNS THAT THE REAL YOU IS EMERGING
We often develop an identity, a specific set of roles that we constantly perform in society in an attempt to fit in and remain comfortable. However, we rarely stop to ask ourselves whether these roles truly define who we are.
Our true self doesn’t really give a damn about what people expect from us, or about what society thinks we should do. It just wants us to grow and flourish. It wants us to expand ourselves, and live by our own authentic, genuine beliefs. And it will do whatever it takes for us to achieve that!
When we’re aligned with who we truly are, our lives are beautiful and we’re in an amazing state of flow. We connect with our purpose and we attract things that help us express ourselves and realize our full potential. Here’s a list of some of the signs that indicate you’re going through this stage:
You’re Worried Less About Impressions
You don’t need approval from anyone else for who you really are. What matters most is whether you’re happy!
As soon as you start realizing how much you’ve neglected yourself and prioritized others, your people-pleasing tendencies slowly disappear and instead give room for loving yourself. So if you are one of those people that make or enjoy doing some film porno online, realize that, you’re not obligated to explain yourself to others, and that the only one you really need to satisfy is yourself.
You Begin To See How Everything Is Dysfunctional
t may take some time before you understand why you’re here and what you need to do. Don’t worry; it’s not so bad.
If you begin to question your existence, you’ll gain awareness of your own conditionings—caused by society and your family—and eventually be able to change them.
You know that most of your personality traits and emotions stem from your early life experiences. You know that maybe your family didn’t unconditionally love you, but rather only did so when you met their expectations. Or that maybe they messed you up mentally and/or emotionally.
As children, we may believe that our true self is not good enough to impress our parents and, as such, we begin to think that the only way to get their attention is to change ourselves into someone else. Although our true self remains inside of us, it gets repressed by parental demands and norms.
We play our part in order to be loved by others, but once we grow up, we realize that we’re not just here to please others; we’re here to fulfill ourselves.
Letting People Who Don’t Serve You Leave Your Life
It’s so sad to think about how many people I’ve had contact with in the past but no longer keep in contact with. People from high school who were once my closest friends; people from college whom I was close to. As you get older, you no longer fit into the social circles and environments that were once familiar to you. It’s confusing and sometimes even painful, but this is actually part of growing up.
This is the time for you to take stock of what you’ve done so far, and where you’d like to go next. You may find that you need to make changes to your life, to reflect the new person you are becoming. In order to do that, you must let go of the old ways of being.
Waking Up From Your Weaknesses
We’re told what we can and cannot be from an early age, but we often fail to listen to our own inner voice. As soon as your true self comes out, you start realizing that those dreams you had long ago are actually attainable. You know that you have everything you needed for following your true passion, and no one has the right to stop you from achieving them.
Before I began writing this article, I had no idea how much I would learn about myself. Writing this piece helped me realize who I am and what I’m capable of. I’ve learned so much about myself and I feel like I’m finally starting to understand why I do things the way I do them. I’m not perfect, but I know I’ll get better. I hope this helps others too!
