Being Seen For Who You Are

May 5, 2014

go-be-seen… is the only way to be seen.

It is very important for the people in your life to see you for who you are, not who they think you should be. They do not need to agree with everything you do and say, but they must appreciate the core of who you are.

In a relationship, if you are not seen for who you are, you will never be whole. If you are contented with being seen as someone else’s version of who you are, you will always feel empty and less than who you are.

If who you are doesn’t work for someone, you let them walk away. End of story. No pretending, no charade, no negotiation.

In order to be seen for who you are, you first need to see yourself. You need to know your beauty, your gifts, your value and your worth. Once you can see yourself, you can allow others to see you. If you are still hiding behind other’s perceptions of you, you have a long way to go.

When you are ready to be seen for the beautiful person you are, you show your true colors to the world. And when you can show your true colors to the world, you attract those people who will most admire those colors in you. Are you ready to be seen or are you still hiding behind other perceptions of you? Other’s perceptions come and go, you are the one left standing. Whose perception is it going to be?

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
