Today, we are living in a closed society. The world we are living in is a global village. However, people are so connected, yet they are so far apart. Why is it happening? To be liked by the other person, we tend to wear masks. At a certain point, these masks are such that they become our personalities.
But ask yourself this question once. Are these relationships meaningful where you have to pretend to be someone else? Will these relationships be such that they will bring you to a better stage in life? In her book “Becoming Flawesome”, Kristina Mä-Lakhiani, a co-founder of Mindvalley, talks in detail about this concept. The beauty with which she takes us on this journey is phenomenal.
Well, there is no particular recipe for a perfect relationship. However, there are some simple steps that you can follow to ensure a fruitful relationship. Taking your mask off requires some basic steps:
- You are the best the way you are: Do you know that the best version of you is what you naturally are? You do not need to pretend to be someone you are not. Today, in most relationships, we have to fake our personalities like someone who is not. Doing this will never yield the best of our personalities.
- You need the courage to embrace your imperfections: There is no point for you to hide your imperfections and chase the race to become perfect. Chasing perfection will bring comparison and self-doubt and demotivate you seeing others. Embrace your imperfections. You might discover some of the best things about yourself when you do this.
- You should be willing to take risks: Take risks. As many as you can. Your real rewards are always on the other side of the fears. If you are ready to do something without a guarantee, you can win great rewards.
The kind of people you will meet after removing your masks are the most genuine ones. These people will care for you all the time. Having people who are in love with our scars and are ready to accept us the way we are is such a boon. In a world where people are busy pretending and forming relationships, you will be lucky to find a genuine person like this.
Do you know that our greatest self is our most authentic self? In the race of becoming perfect and acting as someone who is not, you will eventually drain out and lose your original self. However, the best thing you can do is stay your true self. You will not only find your inner potential but will discover the true gem that you are.
