I like to socialize-Getting along with people, meeting fascinating personalities & learning new ideas. To this point, I meet different personalities every day. Some are enthusiastic, some are bland, some are merry, and finally some totally two-faced (‘fake’!)
I often wonder why they pretend to be someone else? Well, it could be to appear more attractive or interesting or maybe because of yielding to social pressure or lack of confidence-which always leads to trouble. That’s why millions of people today lead lives of frustration and desperation.
Disappointingly, there are a lot of individuals who do that. They are simply tagged as ‘made in China’ by me. Some do that for their own advantage, some by having a fake accent, giving false statements to satisfy the other one and then ending up talking behind their back and some by behaving like an angel for the need of admiration & what not!
Well, as far as the affection part is concerned, everyone tries to impress that special someone, but if you can’t get them by being yourself, then they can’t be that special, of course.
Imagine that same old world with no different styles or ideas. If there would be people who knew nothing except copying others then everything would seem so dull. The world is successful because of those confident and unique minds that entirely changed the daily life style. And believe me! The real ones do have a beauty within!
We all should realize the importance of being undisguised. You never know when a person is impressed by your originality and then brings you a good fortune. And everyone has weaknesses, so what if you have some? Only those with the courage to live their dreams willingly can ever hope to find lasting satisfaction with their lives. Never mind if you face disapproval for your behavior. At least one day someone will value what unique qualities you possess. As it’s said by Raymond Hull that who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away. Because it is better to suffer being who you are than it is to be someone who you are not!
