So I had an absolutely amazing Holiday weekend. Really, it was great! Full of great people, conversation, and oh so many delicious calories lol.
I had a talk with one of my closest friends. We were having one of those self-love type of talks (the importance of loving yourself). He is one of those guys that just make you think about things differently. Well, anyway while we were talking, the following hit me:
When do we draw the line between accepting ourselves as is, and making changes to better ourselves? I am not talking about health changes (like exercise, eating right, etc.) but like personality changes?
For instance if you are a naturally awkward person, should you change so that more people will like you? Or should you learn to love your awkward self? If you chose to love your awkward self, you might miss out on life's opportunities, and not have as many friends. But, if you chose to change your awkward self, you maybe able to embrace different aspects of your personality, and or become for socially acceptable.
Or what about becoming more of a ladies man. should a guy try to be what he is not, just to try to be more attractive to woman? or should he be true to himself? But what if his "true self" isn't that great? What if he actually needs to put up a bit of a front before actually letting people know the real him.
