Yes, the title may confuse you. Make you wonder what he’s talking about. Now you may or may not notice but everyone’s got a dual personality. Infact multiple personalities for that matter. We all have it in us and all of these personalities function at some point due to some reason or the other. As human beings? we crave attention and we crave that human touch. No one wants to be alone and likes to be alone.
So how DO we have multiple personalities? Why do we? Well, I guess it’s a part of who we are. We do it to blend in. We behave differently around different people. A specific side for a specific person. Now I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. Yes if it’s lying and deceptive and it hurts someone? it sure is. In general however? it’s a part of us and how we behave around people. Now think about it, don’t we all behave differently amongst different friends?
There’s always that one friend with whom you don’t open up much and you’re friends on a more formal note. Friends but yes, more formal. You won’t open up much. It’s friendship but not that close and hence the behaviour. You behave differently amongst certain friends. Say a friend with who you can swear around or you swear AT your friend. A friend with whom you can discuss problems and you get sentimental. You let out your secrets and sorrows. Certain friends with whom you get all crazy and fun. You may act differently with your crush. Be all well mannered and nice and maybe be completely different to her friend. You maybe super innocent at home, when your parents around but be a freak as soon as they leave. Yes, we all have that multiple personality side. We CHOOSE to act differently among different people. If it’s a popular group at school you wanna hang out with? you’ll try to act cool, do flashy things. Same with girls. If you’re trying to impress someone, you’ll do something different, something out of the blue.
So it makes me wonder, what IS the real you? or let’s say where CAN you be yourself the most? with whom? No there’s always someone out there who lets you be yourself. Usually your bestfriend. It could be a girl or a guy you talk to and like, but never express it or again, could be your parents. Again, it’s not bad to have such personalities. Infact it’s pretty good at how well you can adapt to people around you and keep friendships and keep conversations up. You can be aggressive to someone you don’t like and be completely passive to a friend. It’s our decisions that make us who we are but a lot of the times, we don’t control this side of us and how we respond. It comes out naturally. So what’s the real you? Just think real deep and analyze it. The person with whom you can share anything? tell everything? and just be yourself. Show if you’re sad or not, show if you’re happy and just share everything. Now more often than not? THAT is the person that brings the best out of you. Your nicest side. 🙂
I’ll say it again, as long as you don’t hurt someone or you consciously plan to be like that? all these different behaviours and personality make us who we are.
I KNOW that person in my life who let’s me be myself and I can share anything with. What about you? think about it and let me know 😀 There may be so many sides to you but which one is the real you?
