To be sincere

A world where most people try to appear something else than what they are is not a good place to be sincere. As someone who likes to be told things straight to my face, I consider people who do just that a breath of fresh air. There is nothing more reinvigorating to me than people that speak their minds.

This kind of behavior gives a base for everyone else regarding these authentic persons. That is what we all need, a stable ground to build upon. When you tell me something, I consider it true information and act upon it. If I find out it was a pile of bullshit it’s almost impossible to build on that.

Sometimes it’s hard to be yourself. It feels as if nothing fits and you wander around with no clue about what you are supposed to do or who you are supposed to be. 

On certain days I have to remind myself what makes me the person I am because the way of the world makes it easy to forget. If we look around, it seems we must all be the same, but that is not right. We are not all the same and that is fine. Our differences and defects are what set us apart, but they also provide unique opportunities. 

Each of us has something to bring in this world, but many of us lose faith along the way and try to be someone we’re not, in order to fit in. We will never fit somewhere we don’t belong.

To avoid ending up in places that are not right for us, we must always be clear about who we really are. It’s never as easy as it sounds, but we owe it to ourselves to try.
