Why is it so hard to be yourself? Most of the time, we try to hide behind a wall of curtain just to show our best mannerisms. This happens during courting. We dress up, spend lots of money to have our hair fixed, and buy classy perfumes, we walk tall and straight, we speak with a clean tongue but is that really what we are in reality?

I am pretty lucky that my family, sibling, family, spouse or in-law respect me the way I am. I am outspoken, persistant, stubborn and dress simple with no make-up. So, most of time I am 95% myself. 5% I had to be well manner to elderly.

Glamour gives a feeling, albeit a transitory one, of heightened self worth, confidence and joy. As long as a person rides the high waves in the sea of glamour and mannerisms he or she feels good about himself or herself. This feeling of self worth is , however, precariously dependent on constant attention from others, which is what glamour tries to ensure. When that attention subsides, the sense of self worth also declines. Hence, this due to the lack of self-respect and strength of character. Beauty only lies in a pure and clean heart. We have to accept simplicity and to potray our true self in life and not to be impressed by show.
