    Don't forget your true self in imitating others

    Human nature is such that we try to imitate others. May be imitate the way they talk, their style, their walking style, dressing, their actions etc. In the process of imitating others, we completely become habituated to the new style acquired and forget our own original selves. By copying others, we lose our originality. People will like our true selves and not the one we imitate by copying others. Have your original character not because people will like but because every person is unique and have unique characters which looks artificial when you change it and imitate others.

    It is true we try to imitate some people in our acts for some time. In doing this we will forget our original habits and look like others. It is good if we learn good habits and good acts from others and imbibe them it will be good for us. But imitating without a purpose is not good. Being our self is always better. We should never lose our original character but we can improve upon. Sometimes we try to imitate other to make fun of them. In such cases sometimes it will become our habit and people start laughing at us. So we should remember that making fun of others is not a good phenomenon. My aunt's son used to talk like a stammering person to make fun of people who have the stammering problem. Finally, in doing so he got the stammering problem and others started making fun of him.

    I don't think everyone imitates others. People having their own well developed personality, never bother to copy others. They remain happy and content with their own ways and styles. However, it is true that many of us tend to imitate others.

    People generally copy styles of celebrities which include their clothes, hair styles and even mannerisms. Once I had come across an individual who had adopted the typical style of dialogue delivery of roadside political leaders and used to practice the same for impressing others.

    However, perhaps the author is indicating about the habit of common people to buy something on watching their neighbours or friends having them.

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    We start imitating from a very young age, we copy our parents, elder brother or sister and try to talk or perform the same antics as them. As teenagers, many are fans of actors, celebrites and again the same imitation continues.

    But as we grow-up as adults,most of us stop imitating because, we sub-consciously have an identity of our own that is accepted by people around us. In such situations, if we try to imitate or change, it backfires. People start asking 'what happened to you', 'this doesn't suit you'. I've seen people in my profession, when they are promoted they try to imitate the boss or a recent character, it looks so funny, artificial and it's sad that the person's true image is lost.
    If we were to imitate, we need to choose the good deeds, the acts to help others, the commitment and integrity that some people bring to their jobs and roles.

    There are a few people indulging in imitation and particularly such trend is noticeable among adolescents. Teenagers find intense pleasure in copying the the manners and atticates of their darling actors and actress or any one for whom they have deep likings. Though this stage does not last long - say a couple of years and finally they relinquish such habits.
    To some extent, such an imitation offers wide publicity to the hero who originally displayed such an attractive posture. In fact, the heroes indulged in such activities derive maximum pleasure witnessing the madness of the groups having made them super heroes.
    It is not that much bad to copy someone indulged for the social - cause and by getting due encouragement, such youths may prove to be the chains of social - upliftment essential in the present scenarios.
