A conversation yesterday reminded me of the importance of doing this. Being yourself is one of the best things you can do, and it’s one of the very few things you can control.
You can’t be something else, someone else, or some other form of anything other than yourself. Well, at least you can’t do any of those and expect to be truly happy or at peace.
So be yourself 🙂
It can be pretty scary to be yourself. I’ve struggled with this in my life and I’ve been a people pleaser more times than I care to count.
But as I have learned and am continuing to learn – don’t live to please other people. In the end, people won’t be who you answer to. All the people you pleased in your life really won’t matter when it’s all said and done. No one here on Earth has the right to judge you for who you are and what you do.
That doesn’t mean it’s an excuse to not be good to others. It’s not. But be yourself. Chances are if you never have or haven’t for a long time, you will feel extremely liberated and more than likely, happier once you’ve made that choice.
Have a good day.
