It’s a very common question to ask: “Who am I?” and it’s not an easy question to answer.
To find out who we truly are, we need to delve deeper and create something that is uniquely ours. So instead of answering the question about who we are from society’s perspective or what traits define us, it is better to answer by showing examples of what makes us the person that we are on our own. Trusting in your own true nature is sexy, brilliant, and way more fun than any comparison game because it builds beyond the temporary.
Here are 3 ways to overcome temporariness:
Invest in yourself: The most challenging thing in life is to unleash your potential, open your heart and shine. Start now by doing one thing 100 per cent for yourself — spend time in inner development, learn a new skill, or do something you have been dreaming of for a long time. Look into the mirror and look straight into the eyes of the person you see there and tap into your innermost desires with a promise to yourself that you will not stop until you have achieved your dreams and wishes. Be willing to be flexible with your time and desires and allow your needs and passions to change over time.
Discover your true self: To do this, introspection is required. Spend time being still and silent and using that time to get to know who you are. Then, you can practice radical self-acceptance and find more self-love for ourselves. Don’t forget to practice self-care and health, set boundaries, start knowing and accepting yourself, as self-acceptance leads to more self-love.
Be kind to yourself: People often neglect themselves and fixate on their imperfections. This can lead to low self-esteem, self-doubt, and other negative thoughts. It is important that we maintain our own well-being even if it means doing things that we might not enjoy or feel like doing at first. This includes eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, exercising, spending time outside in nature, etc.
