Try Being Yourself

This is a reblogg that I found an interesting post on being yourself. This quote caught my attention.

“Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love you.”~Yusra Patni

The thing about most people who are always trying to change people is that those who try and change others are often attempting to change them into a worst version of themselves. When their original ol’ self will do just fine.

There’s a big ol’ difference between changing someone and helping them refine and hone their best traits, skill or whatever. Pushing them to be the best they can  be.  It’s still them but you just see where they can excel and you encourage them to do so because you believe in them. This is what some think they’re doing.

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago.

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. I love it. I don’t get why people want to try to fit in. Every one is beautiful in their own way. They need to learn to embrace their uniqueness.

    • Thank you. I think it’s a learned and partial psychological need by we are all social beings and everyone wants approval from another human being and wants to belong to another human group so we work hard to make that group accept us. Especially during our youth. Even at the risk of comprising who we are. But as we mature this begin to matters less to us as we come into our own rights of individuality.

    It depends on where you are if you can be yourself or not. At a job one doesn’t have this freedom not if you want to remain employed. Social settings are different. Sure, be yourself.

    • Manny, thanks for pointing that out. But it was speaking mostly in social situations not professional situations. I am sure everyone’s aware there’s a certain amount of adaption required in a work environment.
