because people speak English
"Be true to yourself" means when your thoughts be in harmony with what you do or say. Sharing or saying what your feelings are is an example of being true to yourself. So, when was the last time you did or said what you truly thought or felt?
My answer: Two days ago, when one stranger said: "Oh, It's so cold inside the class." I replied:"It's true, however, I think it's good for me since it prevents me from falling sleep in the middle of the class."
"it prevents me from falling sleep in the middle of the class" LOL
Though it was long time ago, I can still recall that feeling - falling asleep in the middle of the class.
It's happened to me all the time, because I was a bad student.
To be truly yourself is a difficult task, you have to learn a lot about who you are, what is your personality.
I think that peer pressure is a main obstacle.
Here is my story. I love to sing English songs, for me it's the most enjoyable way to practice English.
I make a video of myself singing because I'd like to see how other people see me.
One day my friend saw one of my singing videos and he said: "It's embarrassing, you're a terrible singer, you make a fool of yourself." And I answered: "I don't care what do you think, I like it and I have a group of friends who think it's adorable."
So I guess my point is - it's great to have a group of friends who not judge you and let you be truly yourself
wow! Thanks a million times dear Greg for your nice comment. I think bad students are very smart student. And, therefore, you are very smart dear Greg.
What you said is absolutely true. When you do not judge someone, it means you accept him/her as he/she is and this gives a good feeling to both of parties. The reason that I love your singing is you are yourself and you don't try to show you are perfect, which I think this is more difficult than any other thing. It needs courage and bravery!
Would you please explain it more? Why when you are sick you are truly yourself?
