Live Life: Be Yourself
Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great thanksgiving or if you don’t celebrate that holiday that at least you had a great day that day. Today I wanted to talk about being you. Yes, you. I believe most of us are lying to ourselves when we say we are being who we really are or want to be. I know I have lied to myself for most of my life and that I still lie to myself here and there. I think for myself part of the reason I lie to myself is in fear of what I would do if I started being honest with myself. Should we really be afraid though? For me personally I know it is kind of frightening and perhaps it is the same for you as well, but we must not let fear control our lives. We need to stop lying to ourselves and be what and who we are meant to be. This won’t be an easy journey, but it is definitely one we all need to make if we hope to have the kind of happy lives we all deserve. Remember, as Joseph Campbell quotes, the privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
