Do You Really Know Who You Are?

How many times have you heard “Oh my god, why would you do that?”, “Ew, no, don’t do that”, “Stop you’re embarrassing yourself”…? It might be just me, but I’ve heard it too many times to count.

Everyone has a perception of who you should be or what the world should look like and they worship it like it’s their own religion. Nothing in this world would change their mind or make them see something differently.

It’s those stubborn minds that screw with your own and make you doubt everything you ever think or know about yourself.

I am a victim of this as well, you’re not the only one.

There will be times when I will be shopping with a friend or with my mom and I’ll pick up a shirt I absolutely love and then ask them for their opinion on it. Right there is the first instance of me wanting approval from others for my own likes and dislikes.

How insane does this sound?

We all are just searching for approval and acceptance from the people we love in order to be truly happy. I have spent so much of my life trying to make every single person I come in contact with, like me.

It’s impossible but I still try. It’s this tiny thing called insecurity when I found out someone doesn’t like me or has a problem with me that makes me think I did something wrong. Of course I didn’t, and I know that, I just can’t get the thought out of my mind that I could have done something different to get them to change their perspective about me.

Lemme tell you, it’s not the right mind set at all. It’s also crazy time consuming to try to make every single person happy in your life. I’m not saying blow a friend off if they want to talk or hang out with you when you don’t have anything going on, I’m just saying it’s not easy.

Give yourself a little credit from time to time. That’s a good quality to have, just be sure to make time to have yourself be happy too.

However, why would we be going through all this work to please people when you don’t even know who you are or you’re not being yourself. It’s like you’re lying to all of them because all you want to do is get them to enjoy your presence.

I think the most important thing a person can do is to find out who they truly are. It’s terrifying knowing that if you find out who you are is nothing like the way you’ve been living but it’s completely worth it in the end.

I still don’t truly know exactly who I am but I have a better idea after looking into these 3 questions I recently found. Trust me, it’s worth it to find yourself.

1.What would you do if you couldn’t fail? 

So many people are petrified of the idea of failure. They don’t take risks because of the possibility of it. Some don’t ever try anything new because they fear the outcome might not be what they wanted.

But what if you knew you couldn’t fail? What if it was completely impossible and not an option. What would you do?

2. What makes you genuinely happy? 

Family? Friends? What makes you the most happy. Dig deep into your favorite memories or the times where you forgot the world around you even existed. Those are the times that you find yourself being the happiest.

3. If money were no object, how would you live your life differently?

You’re life isn’t circled around how much money you have, it might not even be about the money. But you always hear people talking about money=happiness. So if money weren’t an object, what would be the things you would change about your life?

Would you live it differently? Keep it the same? Maybe buy others things you know they can’t afford? Who knows. But really think about this one. Imagine your life if money wasn’t an object. Do you think you’d be truly happy living that way? Think again a second time and maybe even a third. You’ll notice your mind starts changing and after a while you truly imagine what you would like your life to look like.


It took me a little while to come up with the answers to those questions but it really does help. It’s always been in the back of my mind to know exactly who I am and if I am living the way I want. I wondered that if I found out who I am, I might have a different view on the world.

I gotta say, it is a bit of an eye opener and I hope that you guys benefited from asking yourself these questions. I know it helped me!

Thanks again for reading though, I hope you enjoyed it! My consistency on writing articles is absolutely horrid and I do apologize, I’ll probably have to apologize many more times after this but I appreciate those of you who stick with me!

Come back daily for motivational quotes and occasional articles being posted! If any of you ever want me to write about anything specific PLEASE let me know down in the comments, I’d love to hear it! As always,

Peace & Blessings

Don’t Rely On Someone Else

Girls-Smile-Photography-Tumblr-12

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” – Stacey Charter
