The true self is part of who we are at times. Your true self defines your emotions, experiences, and your body. Can you describe yourself honestly? You might claim you are an American with Asian ancestry. The wife of Dave who is a doctor. Or you could say you were the wife of Terry a firefighter with South American ancestry, you would still be the same person that you are. Your life and experiences might be different but theoretically, you would be the same person. There is something about us that is constant but it seems hard to describe exactly what it is.
Who are you?
One thing for certain is that if align yourself with who you are, you will be happier in your life. Living a life that is not who you truly are will make you feel as if something is lacking in your life. No matter how well off you are or how much success you have if you are not being your true self something will surely be lacking.
