You can’t be yourself when your personal identity is directly linked to what others think or say about you. Good or bad.
Every single person on the planet is a work-in-progress.
When you truly know who you are — and who you are in the process of becoming — you will no longer live in fear of what people say or think about you.
And that is a powerful place to be.
Those you attract into your life will know the true you, not some distorted or diluted version of yourself that you present to others in order to maintain one’s friendship or approval.
No, not everyone will like you (whether you try to please everyone or not), but those who do will like and respect you for who you truly are.
Be a good person — as you are and in your own way — and you will attract more of those types of people into your life.
Because in a world of media manipulated trends, spin, fake news, and superficial celebrities, authentic, genuine, and confident people are much rarer than they should be.
So step it up, if you haven’t.
And keep it up if you have.
We need you.
