It can be hard to be yourself in such a judgemental world. But why be anyone one else you have entered this world to be yourself so take the challenge and be the best person you can be by being YOU. Too often than not we can look at others and envy their lifestyle, looks or ability to achieve their goals, There is no need for envy if you want something then go for it. Just be yourself and go for everything you want out of life. I have encouraged my daughters to be themselves and to never take on board what others think or say. It does not always work but it is a stepping stone for them to consider as their life progresses from teenagers into adults.
Take the time and work out who you really are and be the person you want to be. Listen to others opinion and consider the options but do not be swayed by their judgement if you do not whole heartedly agree.
Trust yourself with your thoughts and progress to be the person you want to be.
Find your contentment that cannot be taken away and enjoy it.
When you learn to be yourself you become more courageous and learn to feel comfortable in your own skin.
Everyone has something that they love and are good at. Take that something and let it shine.
Cherish the people in your life who love you for you and do not want or wish you to be like this person or that.
Revel in the success that is truly yours. Strive and work hard for that goal that is coming your way.
Follow your intuition. If something does not dell right then 9 times out of ten it is not.
If you understand your feelings then you are more in tune to who you really are and you come across confident and the real you emerges.
Accept your flaws and the mistakes you have made. No-one is perfect and we all make mistakes - you just need to own them.
Be gentle on yourself ALWAYS.
React calmly in stressful or hard to cope with situations. (This is something I need to improve on).
Take the tome and be in tune to who you really are and go forth to SHINE LIKE THE STAR THAT YOU ARE.
