We fear that people won’t like us, respect us, or value us if we don’t “fit in”.

Why do we fear that so much? It’s a waste of energy.

Like all fears, it’s unnecessary. Look, you’re not going to die alone when you become yourself 24/7.

It’s not only a waste of energy, but it’s also a waste of LIFE, if you’re not living it on your terms.

I believe that you should live the way YOU want. You should always say and do what YOU want. I don’t care where in the world you live. “That’s not what we do in our country.” Find a way!

Because what’s the alternative? Do you want to shut down your true personality and become some robot that’s programmed by society or other people?

No one deserves that.

You’ll be happier if you become yourself.

When we take control of our lives, we start feeling better about it. And when we feel better, we enjoy our life more. And that makes us happier.

“That’s common sense!” Sure. So are a lot of other things. But you need to act on it. Otherwise, you’re just a talker.

Over the past few years, I’ve been gradually living life on my terms. And now, I can honestly say that everything I do and say is because I want to.

I only work with people I like. I spend time with people I like. And I do what I like. Now, it also happens that I’m a responsible person and help others. I like to set a good example for my environment.

That’s just who I am.

It’s time for you to be yourself. Do what you’re meant to do: The right thing.
