Decoding 'being you'
The idea of writing about this, popped into my head while I was watching Jabong's ad. The tag line is a very cool and comfy 'be you' and I was wondering what does it actually mean?
You are you only..why would you be someone else and dress like him/her! It's obvious, isn't it ?
But a few moments later it dawned on me...Ki aisa nahi hai!
Majority of us think we are unique and like no one else.. But a large part of us is still struggling to find its own voice and identity (you can ignore this line if its not applicable to you & you have found yourself :p).
So, I thought why not decode this 'be you' phenomena and understand it in a way that even I can use it :)
Here I go with my random thoughts -
LEARN TO SAY NO! I have always wondered, why do all these spiritual sites and articles advocate this.But, slowly I am beginning to realize, the power of 'no'. Ghoom phir ke..baat ek hi hai-What are you doing for yourself and what are you doing for others. Following Christian Grey's mantra 'we aim to please' is best left to him only ;) (p.s. 'Aim to please' if it makes you happy-truly! )
Very comprehensive post on being ourselves just because we all are unique and can't please everybody around.ReplyDelete
Loved these positive aspects.
