Be Yourself

Spread the love



be yourself bajezen

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

    I love your perspective about how stifling creativity actually silences our voice. I’d never thought about it that way before, but I feel like that is how it is for me: my voice is found through my creativity.
