Nobody can be you but you

The time is now!  Start believing in you!  It took some time but now I no longer look to others for validation. We are all so caught up in what others might think of us that we forget how lovely it is just be ourselves. In front of the camera for 20 years plus it's easy to get into the groove of showing people what they want or expect to see, adios bambino. Me!  Love it or hate it,  I gotta be.  And guess what?  Truth be told and lies be gone..... You too are free to be yourself!  Let's all try it. I think we'll all be pleasantly surprised.  What do you think?

I think that you are so right. We get so caught up in what people "think" we are that we do not allow ourselves to just be. And I agree that if we were to let go and JUST BE alot of us would be so much happier!!

Well said Lyte! This is so on point. People need to realize that we are all individuals. We each have a different look, attitude and persona to put on the table. It is so important for people to be exactly who they are and be comfortable being just that.

I think you're right. I still have days when I struggle with this concept even though I'm well into my 30's now. I think this can be one of the hardest attitudes for young women to embrace since many of us are raised to be people pleasers and put others before ourselves. Nothing wrong with making others happy, but it can't truly be done until you're happy yourself. The day I let my family know who I was, I definitely felt free and I haven't looked back.

It is what it is and I be who I be!! It also took me some time to get the point where I quit worrying about what others think. People need to hear this and embrace it.

I am an individual. Nobody can ever feel what I feel. If me and another person happen to be looking at the exact same thing, at the exact same time, we are going to see it differently. That's what makes us unique.
