Pretending to be someone else is experienced as much by adults as it is for teens. We feel one way but act another. We pretend we like something when we really don’t. We sacrifice our dreams because we are fearful of failure.

Take care of your health as early as now. Many diseases nowadays are connected with unhealthy lifestyle. Drinking and smoking are two good examples of an unhealthy lifestyle. You will notice a change in your body’s performance. You’ll feel more energized. Little lifestyle changes can go a long way. It is a common mistake committed by many people.

Most importantly, you must not let anyone treat you badly. You don’t need another source of stress in your life. Focus on what you’re really good at. There is at least one thing that you’re really good at. Identify it and focus on honing that particular skill. Don’t be afraid of change. Don’t stick with conventional thinking.

How many times do you hear the advice, “Just be yourself” uttered as if it’s a magical solution to all social woes? What do I need to do to fit in? “Just be yourself” is the key, apparently. Can you be anything but yourself? To be genuine is to do the things you believe in and want to be accepted for. There’s no need to pretend that you like something you don’t.

It’s about relating to others with a genuine approach. Firstly, how can you be genuine? Don’t worry about what other people think – Respect the opinions of others, but don’t let them push you in a different direction if you don’t agree; Don’t compare yourself to other people – It’s difficult enough understanding how you’ve reached your own position in life, so how could you work out anyone else’s?

And there are probably people out there who think you’ve got it made when they don’t know the half of it. It all goes toward your individual personality. You don’t have to be or do anything you don’t want to. So listen to what you love and enjoy each day striving for more of those things; Accept when you’re wrong. Nobody is perfect. Be open. You don’t have to tell everyone every last detail about your life. That’s not the point of being open.

A genuine personality takes the situation in front of them, stays constant in what they believe, states their true opinions, and gives the same respect to everyone, but does this in varying ways. Which brings us to the second question. How do you relate to others? This alone is a big deal. Respect – Not everybody is like you. It’s fine to respectfully disagree with another person’s views. Respect helps relations.

There’s no need to compete or outshine others. It won’t make you better. Just be humble always because modesty and courtesy can go a long. Acceptance comes more freely when you’re happy to acknowledge your weaknesses as well as your strengths.
