ALLways You at ALL Times
I have made it very clear how important knowing yourself is. One of the main reasons for that, is because every now and again, you will be tested. You will be put in situations where your character may be challenged. And in those moments, I have make sure that I do not alter my course. I have to make sure that I am not swayed by the situation. If I am someone who conducts themselves in a respectful manner, then I must continue to do so. Because in the end, if you alter your character in the heat of the moment, you will just be proving the others right. Absolutely easier said than done. Naturally you want to defend and stand up for yourself. This is when it all boils down to picking your battles. Lots of time, people have already made up their minds about you, and not one word you say or action you take will change that. This is completely fine! I have learned to never feel the need to convince anyone who I am. I am a human, not a product who needs a sale pitch. Your friends and family who truly love you and know you are the only ones who should be passing judgement anyhow. STAND FIRM ON WHO YOU ARE no matter what situation you are faced with.
