Being true to one ’s self is hard to do especially to others who do not really understand its real meaning. Having a positive outlook in life will require you to be truthful. Not for anybody else but for yourself. It is pretty simple. All that is needed is to do the things which really come from within you. This means that you have to stop pleasing other people. You need to please yourself first. Do not act as if you are courteous if you know for a fact that you just want others to see you as such. Do not pretend to be someone just for the reason that you want others to like you. Appreciate and love yourself. Accept your flaws and your strengths. If you wish to change, then you must to do it because you want to be a better person and not because this is what others want you to do.
