The proudest thing you can ever do is love people while staying in your own skin. To be honest the proverb ‘Be yourself’ is half understood and wrong. Anyone can be themselves in the need of their convenience but the real bravery comes when you have to give without taking anything. There is no purpose of ‘being yourself’ if it is only beneficial for you and not for the people around you. The basic purpose of being born as a human is to love and to be loved and to care and to be cared. 'Being yourself’ is not just loving yourself and taking care of yourself. In true sense 'Being yourself' is being human that is loving yourself while nurturing people who love you, people who are around you, your family your friends, your lover, your acquaintances, even the strangers who are in dire need of hope to live.
‘Being yourself’ should contribute to already merely existing humanity which has been reduced into individuality.
