Inspire: be yourself

m151be-yourself-unknown-posters

The other day, the message of the Kabbalah Tune-Up was:

If you want people to love you– who doesn’t — then show them your faults, not your virtues.

We are all afraid of this, especially us first born sons who bear the weight of the world on our shoulders. But honesty is all there is. We all feel messed up inside and when we see ourselves in others, we can connect and heal. And then we can get somewhere deeper.

Today, encourage people to be who they are by showing them who you are.

All too often, many of us hold back who we truly are, fearing how others will take us. The thing is you can’t compromise yourself and who you really are, nor should you be apologetic about who you are. None of us is for everyone.  All opposites don’t attract; many repel.

When we’ve put the worst on the table, everything else is so much more palatable. After all, it’s the ‘undesirable’ elements we’re so afraid will drive people away.  Yet none of us are perfect and sometimes the things we’re not too fond of in ourselves are appreciated by others; that isn’t necessarily a good or bad thing.  The reality is that when we’re open and honest about who we are and what we want, in our words and our being, we are able to better align ourselves with others with others who, in their words and being, can support and facilitate our visions for ourselves and our lives.

For varying reasons, some parts of our selves stay in our shells.  I’ve found that other people’s openness and honesty inspires me to be less reserved about sharing parts of my personality.

Inspire someone today to be themselves by being yourself.  You may never even know if your doing so touches anyone, but rest assured–it does.
