It is easier to be someone you are not than to be your real self. You can’t be your real self if you are not true to yourself. You can’t connect with your real self if you don’t know yourself. Don’t hide who you are. Be proud of who you really are. Don’t waste your time trying to be something different. The more you do that, the more you are moving away from your real self. To connect with your inner self, you must be yourself.
It is easier to get what you want if you know yourself. If you don’t know yourself, if you are not true to yourself, if you are not your real self, you can’t pursue your dreams. Even if you pretend to do something to better your life, you will end doing the wrong thing. According to Margaret Young, “… you must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.” In order to get what you have been fighting for, you must first be who you really are. If not, you are in for a long walk.
