We have so many words to speak but bury them deep inside For fear of rejection, there are parts of ourselves that we hide Be yourself they say It’ s hard when society seems to say you are not enough So you want to deconstruct those “ugly parts “ Maybe then you will be loved I wish they would teach “self-love” in schools then we wouldn’t be so insecure The message taught is that you need to compete to “win at Life Life is no race to be won, we must not bury our creativity Too many voices silenced, souls crushed because we fail to embrace the very things that make us so unique.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson
The essential lesson I’ve learned in life is to just be yourself. Treasure the magnificent being that you are and recognize first and foremost you’re not here as a human being only. You’re a spiritual being having a human experience. Wayne Dyer
