About Being Ourselves

'bout the language, that's fine by me.. superb command of English is over rated, we just need to be ourselves xD'

Well I was reading comments on my last post and was about to reply one... the one I just mentioned above...then it started becoming lengthy so I decided it would be great as a post.

This one is simply about being ourselves... what does it mean? personally i dont think its over rated... IMHO its good to be ourselves but its better to be our best selves. We all have potential to be more then what we are so we should not be content with who we are. Well Im not saying we should be over zealously pushing ourselves...that's just tiring! and can be quite painful for others to endure too.

But sometimes under certain circumstances we cant wholly be who we want to be or rather who we really are. Circumstances may vary. Many factors such as Time, Money, Cultural Background, Family and Relationships, and so on could throw you off track . And mostly we can't really be who we are to the fullest. We are part who people want us to be. But that said... It brings us to a question... Is it worth living for people? I shall not answer that... because it is a point definitely to ponder. Go on and think about it.

There may be a lot of things that you could say stop you from being who you want to be or what you want to be. But those are just excuses. Because deep down inside you know that 'you are not afraid to fail but rather afraid off the greatness you are capable of' And you know that with greatness comes a whole lot of other things. But thats just my humble opinion.

OK Im off now.... don't know if I made any sense to anyone ~_~

owwhhh.. Abs.. i was talking in Amber's situation. her not having to converse oh so perfectly in English doesn't make her less of a model. be ourselves in sense of not faltering to people's ridiculous expectations. so improvements come with hard work and slow and steady progression. changes should be gradual and evolution-like.. not overnight xD

It's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you.
