Are you really being you?
I mean REALLY being REALLY you?
Or are you maybe, just maybe, an edited version of you.
The you that world looks more favourably upon…
Like a filtered version of you.
Because you know something, being yourself in a world that requires, no DEMANDS, perfection and compromise – is not easy.
What is easy, is learning to apologise for your ‘quirks’, learning to dumb down, stay quiet or worse – say words you don’t really mean.
In short, learning to filter and edit who you really are, to fit in better. For an easy life.
Well, let me tell you this, you are making a big mistake.
It is not an ‘easier’ life at all, it is a duller life. A life less lived.
It is a crime.
It is a crying shame to deprive the world and the people around you of ALL THAT YOU REALLY ARE.
They say that people come together in this life for a reason. If you are not being all that you are, then you are not bringing your gifts to the party, my friend.
And people are missing out.
Missing out on what you have to offer.
So do not waste another day being this copy, this edited version of you.
Strip it all off, go forth and DO NOT APOLOGISE for your ‘you-ness’.
The world will adjust.
Some people in your life may fade away – but the right ones will stay – and new ones will come…
What are you waiting for, time is precious.
Ladies, Pass It On…
