Done Pretending

When we pretend to be someone we’re not, we’re not fooling anyone but ourselves. All of our interactions with others leave them, and us, feeling as though something is slightly off. And, it is. When we are not our true selves, we’re really lying. We’re cheating others out of the company of our own wonderful selves. And we’re forming relationships that our inauthentic self might enjoy but denying ourselves relationships that our true self might find rewarding. You deserve the love, support, companionship and admiration of friends and family who know you exactly as you are and find you to be someone they want in their lives. Your time is too precious to waste trying to gather a circle of friends from whom you must hide your true self. There is nothing more exhilarating than being yourself – and allowing that to be enough.

    I love the line “There is nothing more exhilarating than being yourself-and allowing that to be enough”! Exactly. It has taken me far too many years to learn this but I delight in it every day now and won’t ever let it go again.
