If you want to be happy and at peace there is one thing you must do without fail. And that one thing is to be YOU. This sounds very simple, but it’s often missed. You are a special version, a unique person. No one in this world can be you. You are the only You. You have a unique set of talents and abilities. Your destiny is unique to you. You are happy and at peace when you freely express and develop those unique qualities. Whatever decisions you make, be sure those decisions let you be YOU.
One of the worst mistakes anyone can make is to hide their true feelings, beliefs, and talents while trying to’ fit-in’ to someone elses idea. This happens often in dating relationships. Someone is attracted to another and really wants the relationship to continue. So, they begin acting like the person they think the other wants. They begin to alter themselves into someone else for the sake of maintaining the relationship. A solid relationship must be built upon a foundation of authenticity.
Sadly many continue the false front even into marriage. Many times it is not just one partner who alters themself, but both. It is no wonder such marriages don’t work. There comes a time when the true self must come through and the mascaraed ends. Have the courage to be YOU. Never pretent to be anyone other than your authentic self. You may not be able to impress everyone, but you will attract someone who truly apprecates the unique set of talents, abilities, likes and dislikes that are the authentic YOU.
You need not worry what the other is thinking or feeling and don’t assume you know their thoughts. Never play the role of ‘mind reader.’ If something is important, the other will tell you and you can discuss the matter. If you have a question, ask it. Concern yourself only with what you can control……your own thoughts and feelings. Be true to yourself. Then you will be the authentic partner someone special is looking for.
For now, Earlynn’s just sayin’: “There’s no one else in this whole wide world who can be YOU. So accept yourself, love yourself, be proud of your talents and abilities, and you’ll find the happiness and peace you’re looking for.”
