This is something I have to remind myself of constantly. When it comes to expressing ourselves and being true to who we are, most of us struggle at some point or another – some of us more often than others. And it’s only natural, really – we want to fit in, be normal, be loved, and all of that.
But isn’t it true what Dr. Seuss once so wisely said? That the ones who mind what we say or do actually don’t matter – because why would we want them in our lives if we can’t be true to ourselves around them? The only people you do want to surround yourself with are the ones who don’t mind in what ways you express yourself – they see you for who you are, love you unconditionally, and know that you are beautiful in every way.
So stay true to who you are. You are the most important person in your life! This is your life and no one else’s!
Let your feet carry you where your heart desires. Forget about the nay-sayers and trust the people who actually care and want good things for you.
What kind of people do you want in your life? And are they really the ones closest to you?
