Be true to yourself

 To be true to ones self is to not only see the faults within yourself but also to see the goodness within. Faults are not a bad thing if you recognize them and learn to overcome or suppress them. To dwell on the mistakes you make and the faults you have is to only hinder your emotional and spiritual growth. To Realize that you are not the only human to have faults and that others have the same if not similar faults is to see that you are not as bad as you may believe. Those who seem to cling to the mistakes and dwell on their faults also seem to have an issue with self esteem and/or self worth. The greatest fault one can have is to make the faults they have the center of their life. Learn from mistakes and grow and overcome the faults. Take the better parts of who you are and focus on them. Life is a wondrous gift and we can either enjoy it or criticize all its shortcoming and miss out on life it self. Everyone has beauty, wisdom, talents and love within, no one is better or worse than another. We all have different talents and abilities from each other and this was made so that mankind can survive in a group. Without being a social species we would have probably died out ages ago. Basically we all are pieces of a whole race and each of us are required to make it work. Do not give in to depression or into self abuse. Seek help if you can not overcome them on your own. To seek help is to be smart enough to realize you are only human and need help from time to time. Be true to yourself and love yourself as much as you love others. Be the best you can be and live life instead of just existing.
