Henri- Frederic Amiel once said, “Learn to… be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not.”

To know your real self, to achieve greatness in life, to live a happy and fulfilled life, you must learn to be what you are.

Don’t do things that are against what you stand for. Follow your path. Create your own world, and live in it.

Don’t imitate anyone. Allow them to live their lives. The more you imitate people, the more you will continue to live a miserable life.

Happiness comes from being yourself. Unhappiness comes from sticking to things that are hurting you.

Instead of imitating people, reinvent yourself. Choose a different path. Choose to do things differently, not as others want you to live your life.

It is your life. If you want to live it, learn to be what you really are, and stay away from what you are not.
