It's Time To Show The Real You

Its time to take off the mask.

How many times have you said the words “I’m just a mum” or used your work title to describe who you are?

It is time for us to step away for these masks that we put on ourselves and to really uncover who we are.

When we put on these masks we are not showing up as our true authentic self.  

Now don’t get me wrong, I know that it is very easy to use these labels, however when we do, it does not truly reflect who we are.

It can be difficult for us to identify who we are or even know the certain characteristics that authentically reflect who we are – essentially our personality or style our presence.

Going through my personal journey of reconnecting back to ME, I found it hard that I could use my work title, I simply had to say I’m Christine.

Doing this I had a feeling of disappointment within myself and I needed to know why.  Why did I feel that I was not able to contribute when I was just ME? Why did I feel like people wouldn’t want to get to know “Christine”?  Why did I feel like I was losing a part of myself in this process?

These questions and a lot more kept coming up.  The real reason is that I didn’t know who I was.

I did not know what inspired me.

I did not know what lit me up.

I did not know what I stood for.

I did not know what I wanted for myself.

I did not know simply how to be ME.

For too long I had been playing a game. this game was putting on different roles, labels, masks, costumes all to make others happy.

After taking all this away… I felt naked… stripped back and still trying to hide from everyone.

Getting back in touch with the real you, there is not a magic pill you can take.  It can’t be done overnight. It is a journey, a process. It is like going through your wardrobe and working out what clothes you still like, what still fits and even if that style is still you.

One thing I do know is that, it has been one of the biggest and best things I have done.  I do say that hitting rock bottom was a blessing in disguise as now I can live life as me.

Living life on my own terms.

You maybe asking how you can rediscover the real you.  To get back in touch with your true authentic self.

There are a few ways you can start the process.

I found it hard myself finding out about myself, so I ask loved ones to list 3 words that describe me.  These words allowed me to see what everyone else saw. It is difficult for us to see what we are projection so this can be a good way of looking in the mirror.

another way you can start is by asking yourself what do you stand for?  These are things such as trust, loyalty, honesty, love, friendship etc… Choose 3 and live and breathe them every day.  At any time, you feel like they are not resonating with you then maybe it could be that you are resisting or that the value is you right for you.  There is no right or wrong value to live by. Everyone is different.

Never be afraid of sharing the real you.

For me it is showing up everyday as my true authentic self.

It is living life on my own terms.

What masks do you need to remove?
