Being Yourself


Hey you there, how are you doing these days? I’m sure you must be enjoying yourself and why not, you should and must enjoy yourself. ‘Being yourself’ is all you need to do to keep yourself spry and which keeps you on throughout a hectic day or while you’re engrossed with any kind of exertions. This article is all about this based on my personal experience and with some suggestions on “How to be yourself and why to be yourself?”

BE YOURSELF.
A couple of days prior I was having my tutorial classes and I went there. I was accompanied by  my two friends. We all were walking along the road and we planned to eat something.  So, we all decided what we want to have and technically we ordered three cold coffee. We all were done with our clod coffee and I myself enjoyed having it. The following moment we headed towards our classes and soon I noticed that one of them was buying cigarettes and they distributed it between themselves and they were offering me as well. I simply denied their proposal and when they heard that I don’t smoke and I avoid passive smoking they were shocked and they said, “Why are you acting like a girl? You don’t do anything like we do!” In answer I said, “This is my way of leading life.” After this they zipped up their mouth and remained silent for the following couple of hours. 


This is what happened with me and made me realise that whatever I’m doing for myself is what I’m. And this is ‘I’. After that day I maintain a hand distance from them. 

So, this story helped me to be what I’m and I do believe in being myself, because being myself helps me to be happy and keeps me on throughout a day. I suggest you all to be yourself and make yourself a happy person.


How to ‘be yourself’?


To answer this I’d like to tell you that being yourself is the simplest thing which you can do. It’s very easy and helpful for you to be happy. Being yourself means doing those things which make you feel happy for example you may like to listening to songs, reading books (I love it!), Facebooking, adventure and many things. These could be the things which can keep you happy. 


The main concept of ‘being yourself’ is what you are and how you manage to keep yourself happy. Try to be yourself. Do what you want. After reading my story I hope you understand what I’ve had been through and why being myself is important for me and being yourself in your case. Please be 'yourself'.


Why ‘being yourself’?

I can answer this in a simple and in one sentence because it makes you or anybody else happy. This is the simplest answer I can say. Don’t care of others who say you that this isn’t the thing which should do or this is the thing which you must do, which will make you like them. My experience taught me why I should be myself.

I was inspired to write this article after watching this video of Doing English. In this video he teaches being yourself can make you perfect. Do share your methods of being yourself.

  1. I really love the way you told your friends about your preferences. I also had a friend who offered me to smoke. When it comes to sharing these type of things, everybody tries to involve you. But, it's better to listen your inner call. If it is not clicking you, it's better to stay away from those things.

    1. I agree. In fact staying away from these types of negative things is more good for us. And this is the way to be positive and successful in life. I'm a firm believer of 'being myself' so avoiding these types of these things.
      Thank you.

  2. Hi Subham,
    Nice attempt.
    I am glad that you rejected their proposal. Smoking is not a good habit for anyone.
    We should not change for anyone. We should be, what we are.
    Thanks for sharing your experience.
    And nice template.
    Happy Blogging

  5. Hi Subham,

    Nice post, and I am happy to hear the answer you gave your friend's :)

    Smoking is not good for health, and even if anyone smokes, it should be done privately or with those who also smoke. Makes no sense offering a cigarette to someone who doesn't smoke, or calling them girlish because they are non-smokers. Gone are those days - and if they were a little aware, they'd have known what the latest news and research says about smoking!

    You are right about being yourself. We all need to know our limits and do things we like, without following others or doing what others tell us to. Yes, if they are our elders, always listen to them, as their experience matters - but finally, take the decision yourself, and learn to be responsible for your decision. Nice video too :)

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    1. Thank you Ma'am to be so supportive. I really appreciate of being myself. And it really doesn't matter to me what the world think about me. Yes it bothers me when I feel like the culprit or I find myself the wrong doer.

  7. An amazing blog post. And an amazing idea, but the term "being yourself" has been repeated too many times to sound repetitive !

  8. Hi Subham

    Kudos to you that you stayed true to yourself and you were not peer pressured into doing something that you will regret for life. As everyone has stated, Smoking is bad for health.

    I agree with you %100 that you should be yourself. I will add that when being yourself, be careful of what freedom you are trying to express. Your friends might tell you that they are being themselves doing the wrong thing.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week.

  11. Proud of you Subham. I would rather like to have no friends than those who encourage others to adopt bad habits. Shame on them! And more power to you!
