Wisdom Wednesday ... Being yourself

Wisdom Wednesday are thoughts for social conversation and the sharing of honest opinions, ideals, and Wisdom. All of us have a value worth sharing; it may motivate another to stop, continue and/ or begin a certain process in our personal or social development.

Being yourself....

I was in a Facebook conversation that led to this comment, "Yeah, when meeting someone its their commercial..." In day to day life we meet many personalities. Some of these characters are; "ooo-kay", mediocre, harmful or simply charming. Capturing one's attention and holding it for the moment - or at least that particular moment.

Whether it's a business or social colleague, the first impression is the best. In most cases soon after becoming more frequent with this person, identity born begins to surface. Their actions are not consistent or even congruent to their initial impression. Reflecting on the comment now has some truth... 
"Yeah, when meeting someone it's their commercial..."
It would seem maintaining your person in public would be similar to who we around friends and families. People have become a bit more social apprehensive in meeting others outside their normal cohort of people and/ or anti-social; sinking us deeper into exhibiting a well produced commercial. It seems a few of us have commercials, using it as "OFF" from other commercials as a shield.
"If we all have a public face, does this mean we are not being ourselves?"
We are all asking for authentic sincerity to be expressed in relationships, from politicians, among co-workers and other norms that affect us directly. In hope of experiencing a Right On society! What seems out of reach is achievable, and it's found within a pragmatic solution.
a Truthful Presence
Taking a position of honesty and applying it to thought, speech and action can go a long way in character. Instead of the commercial, we should develop our presence and utilize this form in the best manner. Presence should exemplify a person's generosity, expressing truth w/empathy for winning over an introduction naturally. A "truthful presence" versus the commercial personality is key for relationship building today and can add more value to individuals and communities.
