Sometimes, we get so caught up in trying to live up to other people’s expectations that it’s easy to lose sight of what makes us unique as individuals. One option is to give in to those expectations, hide your true feelings, toe the line, and filter your actions based on what you think other people want to see… in other words “change’ to please others. You won’t be surprised to learn that I advocate for a slightly different position.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because, in the end, those who matter don’t mind,  and those who mind don’t matter.” ~Dr. Seuss…

…something I used to repeat over and over again to my daughters, and my hope is that even as they may not be following that advice now, it still lives and breathes deep inside and will guide them as they grow and mature.

With me, what you see is what you get… and it has taken me a long time to fully get there. When I share my likes, dislikes, what I want to do and don’t… it’s always best to believe me and not to assume I will change. That doesn’t mean I am not open to suggestion, and learning, I truly value both, just understand I am open and honest about who I am, and embracing that makes for my most meaningful relationships.

Being who you are, connecting with the people who matter, and refusing to be dragged down by the negative, ultimately makes for a happier life, a more honest one, and one with more freedom. Just “be you,” and the rest will come along.

Embrace RETURN ON RELATIONSHIP with yourself… and others will too.
