Often, I have heard most people complain about who they are. It shouldn’t be that way; it should be the other way, accepting who you are. Which ever way you were created is how you’ve been programmed to be, naturally. The only effect you can add is nurture. Self-discipline can promote high self-esteem.
If the fear of leaving your shell keeps you up all night, then you are on the wrong track. Staying in your shell doesn’t change who you are, because who you are is something you will discover more only if you move our of your comfort zone. You have to know you can’t bring out your true self by hiding; it’s either you accept your true self or you begin to lose it.
When you are in the midst of people that classify you as timid, the only way to prove them wrong is not by taking it personally or being bitter about it. Rather, you should try overcoming timidity by showing them how great you are, by doing what you do best when given any task to handle. Just know that;
- Who you are is the self confidence you build in you that will yield high self esteem.
- Who you are, is that commitment you put in whenever a responsibility is given to you.
- Who you are is doing the right thing always, with or without being watched.
Your biggest challenge as a person shouldn’t be what people say about you. No, it should be how you accept your true self and preach about what you truly stand for, without being intimidated by racial discrimination or class discrimination. It should be all about what you have to offer to the world, which would place a bigger picture of you and the image of where you come from.
Speak the word and heal the world. Preach about your goal, what you can and what you can be. Preach about you.
