How to be myself?

By farting at work? 😄

Why do I play a character?

When I am born, I am completely myself.

One of my greatest fears as a child is not to be loved by my parents.

So I adapt my behavior.

  • If my mother doesn’t like when I am angry, I repress the anger.
  • If my father thinks I shouldn’t cry, I hold back my tears.
  • If the teacher threatens me with punishment, I behave.

In this way, I keep the love of my loved ones.

The construction of a ‘false’ self

Little by little, I restrain my true nature.

I build a character, which corresponds to the expectations of those around me.

I am beautiful, I get good grades at school, I do a job to please my parents.

I build an emotional shell, so that I do not get hurt anymore.

A gap is created between who I am and what I do.

Except that one day, the ‘real’ self, hidden under layers of masks and disguises, suffocates.

And sometimes a trigger is needed to understand it:

  • An accident.
  • A burn-out.
  • A depression.
  • An illness.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to come to this.

Who am I really?

Within myself, there is a being of love and light that is just waiting to unfold.

This deepest part of me feels many emotions, waiting to be expressed.


Over the years, my natural light becomes clouded by many emotional wounds and limiting beliefs, that control me.

My life is then governed by my unconscious patterns.

Fortunately, life takes care to make me understand all this.

I attract unpleasant situations to bring my repressed emotions to light.

Step by step, it is possible to free myself from the mask, and let my inner sun shine again.

Breaking out of the character

It is introspection, again and again, that allows me to be myself.

Healing my emotional wounds of the past helps me to :

I am unique. I shine with my own unique brightness. I can help create a better world, just by being myself.

How to be yourself?

Being myself means freeing myself from the persona I have gradually created in order to be loved.

Fortunately, it is possible to rediscover my true nature, and to assume my true self.

I can achieve this by healing my emotional wounds.
