Don’t Try to Be Someone You’re Not for Somebody Else

In a previous post here, I talked about an Outrageous Act of Self-Love: Taking Don’t Try to Be Someone You’re Not for Somebody ElseOff Your Masks.         I thought I’d do a quick follow-up to the post, with another encouragement to live authentically.

It’s your life  and you don’t  serve yourself or anyone else  by pretending to be someone you’re not.   It might work for a while, but in the long run, it leads to unhappiness and regret.    To find happiness in your life, you must be who you were born to be … not some lame imitation of  another  … not a fake version of you that you believe others want you to be.

So, I wrote a poem  on the subject that reflects my experience.  I hope it brings a little inspiration to you.
