The worst thing you can do to yourself is to try to be who you are not. Because the world wants you to be who you are not. To live your life, to enjoy your life, don’t try to be who you are not, just be yourself. That is the only way to stay connected with yourself. Your soul doesn’t want you to change who you are. It is your responsibility to stand up against those who are working day and night to change who you are. Don’t surround yourself with dream killers. Don’t hang around those who are wasting their lives. Hang around people who are ready and willing to lift you up. If you are with someone who doesn’t appreciate how special you are, don’t waste your time with this person, hang out with someone who will appreciate you. Don’t let people change you. Don’t waste your time with them. Be yourself for yourself. You are good enough, you are smart enough, you are tall enough, you are beautiful enough for yourself. If they don’t like you for who you are, keep going. That is not your problem; it is their tea to drink. Just focus on your “why”. And you will get your why.
