Remaining true to yourself: Not allowing society to conform you to their standards

Remaining True to Yourself This is a hard undertaking, but not an impossible feat. In order to remain true to yourself, you have to listen to that little voice in your head. That voice of reason. It always knows what is best for you! It protects you from disaster if you only listen to what it has to say. Just because your neighbor is able to run out and buy a new car to impress the girls at the tennis court, doesn’t mean that you need to follow suit. You know what you have, what you need (not want), and you know where your finances lie. Never place yourself in a compromising situation for the soul purpose of impressing others or raising your “status” in the community. Strive to be a leader, and leave the “followers” in your dust. They are petty, and will never help you achieve your goals in life. They will only hold you back. You are unique, stay that way! Once you have proven your worthiness, they will clamor around you and try to emulate what they see. But they will fail miserably, as only you are you. Be strong, proud, and hit your peak. I know you have it in you!

How do you remain true to yourself?

    This may sound sarcastic or harsh, but it is not meant to be. I remain true to myself by simply not giving a shit what other people think (besides family). I live my life as I see fit.

      Tell it like it is brother man! I do too, but not everyone has leadership qualities like we do. I work right beside the town’s tennis court-the local hang out for the snobby elite housewives. Some of their discussions that I overhear, OMG!!! Such shallow people! I love the fact that I am nothing like them. The town full of cliques…that’s where I live. I mind my own, and tend to the family. They can have that life! I don’t want any part of it!
