Life has taught me that looking beautiful is amazing, but a spectacular personality is so glorious it overshadows even the fairest of beauties. We live in a world where everyone claims that being real is good enough. Though, it is amazing to always be your true self as opposed to bowing to societal pressure or painting a false narrative, nevertheless, ensure that the real you is worth being. Being real with a nasty and vicious personality is never good enough.
There is no beauty in being yourself if your personality is characterized by narcissism, arrogance, falsehood, rudeness, promiscuity, betrayal, viciousness, and other vices. The fact that all are flawed does not mean you should be so flawed that you begin to ooze negativity and trouble. Bad behavior should never be applauded, not even by the one who carries it. There is always room for sincere growth so don’t settle for a bad personality. Evolve and be more.
When people come in contact with your person, what sort of experience do you dish to them? You should ponder on this. Socrates told no lies when he said an unexamined life is not worth living. Reflect on your personality and ask yourself, if another person behaves the way you do, will you be a fan? If the answer is no, then kindly flip through your pages and consciously try to do better. Stop settling for less with the excuse that you were created that way. God does create humans, but we determine the person we become.
