This is a "sabaw" article. I'm sorry everyone. Anyways, the clouds are partially weeping again. It's been a week since I last took a bath (Lol) hahaha kidding. anong konek?
It sounds generalizing but we can't resist the truth (whether we like it or not), that we have inherited some or most of our parent's physical attributes, characteristics, even values and or moral. And those are prominent in the eyes of those who know where we came from.
But no, that's not what we're going to talk about right now. This is actually a self assessing article to unleash your personality, individuality and identity.
Who are you really? Yes, uttering your name is widely acceptable but it's not what I'm looking for as a good answer. I know you are very much aware with yourself, aren't you? And if I tell you that you're bearing many identity in one body, does that sound new, cool, strange or normal since you knew about that since the world began?
I wouldn't be surprised that you have many personality, or identity hold in place and worry not for you are not alone. And no, you are just normal. Surprisingly, we are normal at that state!
Let us walk through this topic, shall we?
The question "Who are you?" is a bit tricky. Of course, what will you answer other than your personal information e.g your name, name of your parents to locate who you really are. But that's not what we are about to talk about.
Who are you?
They say that they are their real selves when they are surrounded by friends. Most do admit the feeling of freedom to be yourself when the audience or your company are your trusted friends! You can break rules, er, there's no rules in friendship other than no backstabbing and stealing of boyfriends. (Lol).
Aside from that, most admitted that they are a different person when they're with their friends. Let me rephrase that, they are them, free to express and act like them when they are accompanied by their friends. As if they can literally breath a real oxygen compared to the suffocating gas in the house.
You can be a swearing machine too without being scolded or grounded for a whole week or months.😉 Every friend knows how to keep a secret.
We have different parents with different attitudes, beliefs and way of raising us. Some are:
or it might be the ideal parents whom their children can get along with, just like a sister/brother or bestfriend. Do they really exist? Because all I can see across the neighborhood are all tight-like parents. Thus, making their children act timidly tight as well.
The good Son/daughter?
I can remember few folks who have been acting so good in front of their parents but hide a different persona. Among those is me.
Me. Hahaha. I'm so sorry. I can't laugh so hard and free when I'm at home coz dad will surely go ballistic with how unladylike that is. So when in school, that'll be the best time for me to express my Hahaha.
I knew few cursing machines too and I seldom hear them swear at home. Even few bitchy schoolmates aren't so bitchy at home (or maybe I don't really know)? and brats aren't included here, okay. For a fact that we do not want our parents to get mad at us, we'll do some cover. Let them see that we were raised real good. Well, we should be, shouldn't we?
There's no doubt. We'll appear good and formal. And uh, respectful too for the sake of our parent's reputation and ego and for our's as well. By showing that we were raised good enough, we are boosting our parent's pride, ours too.
Well done, son.
Especially during family occasions, pull your shits together and act with whatever you can pull as your facade. Even though you don't like your uncles and aunties, you should pay some respect...
You can be you online. I mean whatever kind of person you are offline, you can be that same person online. Meanwhile, you can create your own internet or social media persona.
You can be, as long as you can stand by it. Just so you know, meeting strangers online, and knowing his or her true personality offline or in real life will surely shock you...or not.
We are different, depending on whom we are talking to. Friends and peers will let us express ourselves more informally, being with our parents will surely remind us to hold on to our formalities or respectful selves and, when in online, or virtual community, e.g Facebook, twitter, Instagram etc, we can imitate, create, and be us.
It's a matter of choice and situation that we are in. And yes, how our parents react to our choices, actions and attitudes will have a massive effect on our future choices and or decisions.
Thank you to my awesponsors! Have a great day!
