Get a pet. Pets can provide an outlet for your love, but more than that, they can teach you how to be a better person. Observe their willingness to be silly and to play. Watch how simply they stay focused on their goals even if met with resistance. A pet can be an excellent teacher of staying true to oneself. Pay attention to your body. Many times when people try to develop their mind and personality, they forget about the body. But the truth is that there is no separation of the body and the mind. You need to take care of all the parts of yourself in order to be happy.
