Staying true to yourself requires this.
When you decide to stay true to yourself, it can be beneficial in so many ways. Not only are you living authentically, you are doing these five amazing things for yourself:
1. Living in line with your values
Your values are what make you unique and stand your ground. Living true to yourself means you know what you want and how to act and treat others. You base how you live on this.
2. Establishing your own identity
You create a sense of who you are and what makes you unique. This is something that belongs to you and only you.
3. Building courage
After establishing what your values and identity are, it backs you up in times when people question it or try to take it away from you. It gives you the courage to fall back on who you are and what you believe in.
