You probably haven’t really been encouraged to “be yourself” very much. Sure, people say it all the time – “just be yourself!” as if its the easiest thing in the world to go against a lifetime of training and conditioning that encourages the opposite.
How many times have you wanted to say something, but kept quiet for fear of upsetting someone or rocking the boat?
So “just being yourself” isn’t always easy. Sometimes it requires real courage. But in the end, its way more fun and in some ways can be the easiest option, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time.
So say what you mean today. Do what you feel and let your desires and ideas show the way. Don’t try to be someone else, don’t try to squeeze yourself into a “role” and don’t try to make yourself more acceptable to others. It’s time to really bust out and be authentic!
