Why you should always be yourself


just be youWe spend a lot of time trying to be someone we’re not but sooner or later we learn that this is the biggest mistake anyone can make [hopefully].

You need to realise that the best person you can be is yourself. It doesn’t matter whether you’re full of beans, full of the milk of human kindness or just full of hot air. Your real personality speaks volumes.

Some people try so hard to be someone they’re not, they’ve forgotten who they really are – being fake is just like eating pancakes for them. They’re vulnerable, miserable and undesirable.

Why are some people fake? Well … it’s all about popularity – as human beings we want everyone to like and admire us – even the people we may not like.

If we think we’re not ‘good enough’ for others to like who we are, then we make the wrong changes – changes that make us unhappy deep down.

But what we need to remember is that the people we change for, are the people we shouldn’t be around. They’re fake friends who will be by our side while the sun is shining nice and bright, but once it starts to set and darkness takes over – just like our shadows – they’ll disappear.

As the old saying goes ‘be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind’.
