ONE'S SELF, YOURSELF AND THEMSELVES.


Possibly the most ridiculous question people ask other beings, who are you? or who do you think you are? Neither the devil nor the creator would even ponder a question that de minimis a human being, yet none better or powerful than both. The rest of us are nothing but systems field with breath and blood, either of the two evolved elements ceases then we have nothing in common but carcasses. Yet people think, with due to the course of natural selection, some are more important than others, we think nothing is better than being ourselves. 

Being one's self, what do you think makes that priceless?

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. – Dr. Seuss.

I should love to satisfy all, if I possibly can; but in trying to satisfy all, I may be able to satisfy none, the best course is to satisfy one’s own conscious and leave the world to form its own judgment, favourable or otherwise. – Mahatma Gandhi. 

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. – Joseph Campbell. 

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. – Eleanor Roosevelt. 

To be nobody-but-yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. – E.E. Cummings. 

To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen, to what the world tells you, you ought to prefer,
is to have kept your soul alive. - Robert Louis Stevenson

In the presence of some people we inevitably depart from ourselves: we are inaccurate, we say things we do not feel, and talk nonsense. When we get home we are conscious that we have made fools of ourselves. Never go near these people. -Francois de La Rochefoucauld. 

Is life not a hundred times too short for us to stifle ourselves? - Friedrich Nietzsche. 

We should simply accept who we are and the changes fate compounds on our destiny, considering the general definition of a man: a system of different organic molecules that have combined with one another, under the impulsion of a sensation similar to an obtuse and muffled sense of touch given to them by the creator of matter as a whole, until each one of them has found the most suitable position for its shape and comfort.

Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that the creator intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence. Don't let the negativity given to you by the world disempower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.
