Be True to Yourself

Being true to yourself means to act in accordance with who you are and what you believe.

Deep down, we know what is true for us.  As children we establish our own set of core values that make us uniquely who we are.  So why do we sometimes make choices contrary to those values?  Often we find ourselves nodding in agreement to well-meaning advice and swayed by opinions we hold in high esteem – whether we deeply agree with them or not.  It’s human to want to make everyone happy, and sometimes when the options are tough, the easiest choice is what others think is best for us.

Before you decide, ask yourself these things:

  • Is the choice I’m about to make out of character for me?
  • Does it agree with my core values?
  • Is this decision truly my own and no one else’s?

“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.”
– Albert Einstein

Stay true to yourself.  Real choices.  Your decision.
