Flaunt self-securities in unfiltered openness

Aris Showers, IV Leader Opinion Editor

During my last year at IVCC, I rediscovered my greatest love of writing. Writing for the IV Leader has been amazing. I fell in love instantly and my first semester with staff was truly the best. The group of people were fun and unfiltered. I looked forward to those once-a-month layout days.

I realized I want that type of camaraderie in every aspect of my life. I want to surround myself with people that are unfiltered and open to life. Being yourself is the best gift you can give you. Nobody can take that away from you.
The more unfiltered you are the more open you become. More amazing life experiences will come your way. Always be open even while hurt. You should believe in unfiltered openness.

In order to live an unfiltered life, you must say whatever you feel in that moment. Let go and just voice it. Being unfiltered means doing whatever makes you happy in a positive manner.
You should never waste your time harboring anger. Taking on negative vibes allows negativity to seep within your veins and tarnish your security with self. Your filtered self will set in.

One of the biggest things I see often in people is envy. We live in a world where the media promotes cravings in people to covet others. Being satisfied with who you are and what you have is a part of being grateful for what’s only yours.
So, it may be tough for some people to allow their own shine to show. It’s never too late to start living a life promoting self-securities. Embracing your own shine is the most important part of you. Your shine is amazing.

There will be slights in life. Accept those slights, but you shouldn’t allow them to fester within you. Be open and know that wasn’t meant for you. Move forward with openness to the next amazing encounter.

Amazement seeks amazing things and people. You are amazing. Let go and continue into positive self-securities.
The path to self-securities is attained through training your mind. Reading books that motivate and empower you. Self-knowledge is the most fulfilling thing you can do for yourself.

If you can’t focus on reading- seek professional counseling. You can be taught how to deal with your insecurities. Because you deserve to shine in an amazing euphoria of self-securities every day of your life.
Remember to always celebrate every small step you take towards reaching your goal of being self-secure.
