We have heard this many times, “Just be yourself!” What does it mean to be yourself?
Be Yourself: The Secret Formula to Removing Negativity
Be Yourself Meaning
To be yourself is to align your actions with your higher purpose in life. With practice, these actions will become second nature or natural.
Do you remember the last time you blinked? Do you think about breathing to breathe?
These actions are so necessary to our survival and well-being that our unconscious takes over.
Is being yourself not as essential to your well-being? If so, then how can we make positive thinking about ourselves as natural as blinking or breathing?
This is something that I struggled with for a long time. In my life recurring negative thoughts associated with two fears that I had to overcome.
The first fear is the fear of something negative happening.
The second fear was of me doing something negative leading to something negative happening.
Whenever either fear was present I would have a negative thought. At that point, I would then act out of that fear and try to overcome that fear. This did not work to rid me of the thought! For example, I would try to tell myself hey “I’m watching too much TV!” and then I would go a week without watching TV, this did not help. Or I would say to myself just ignore it. While this worked for some this did not work for me.
That’s when it finally clicked I could not get rid of a fear by acting out of fear. I could not get rid of a negative thought by acting on that thought whether in a positive or negative way. I had to simply become myself!
What do you mean to be yourself?
It’s simply the choice in the “valley of decision”! Every moment was an opportunity to decide. For example, let’s say you are walking into the bank and you see someone else about to walk in. They are just far enough from the door that you say to yourself “if I hold the door for this person I will be holding it for about ten seconds”. Then you think “umm ten seconds is a long time.” Then you think “what will the person inside the bank think of me for holding the door this long. Umm, they will think it’s weird.” Then you walk in the door like you didn’t see the person trying to enter the bank. The person walks in and gives you a look. You act like you did not see them again. They know better but most importantly you know better. That was the “valley of decision”.
How did we do? Did we invite positive energy or negative energy? Did we act within our self or act outside of our self because of some external reason?
Be Yourself and Overcome
So how did I get rid of various negative recurring thoughts at different points of my life? I started to live on purpose with purpose! I did what my higher (moral self) would do at each point in my life when I had to decide. By doing this I put out the energy that I wanted to receive. I was not looking to see what I could get from something, someone or some situation but rather I saw how love and life are work. The first thought is always to hold the door open for ten seconds! That is the real you, that is natural! When you do what is natural you don’t think twice about your decision. When you act outside of yourself that experience/energy/ thought will recur in your mind as you think about what you could have done differently.
