Be Yourself

Wednesday, June 26, 2013



I thought about this one for a while and realized I tried to be what I thought others wanted me to be. Now I am choosing to be what/who I want to be. It may be a little later in life one can realize this. I thank you all for your comments and wonder how introspective we can be.

    I agree. Sometimes I wonder why we learn life's lessons so much later in life than we would like!

    Your blog is so coincidental to what I just started doing. I have started a journal of positive statements that pertains to myself. So far I have two listed.
    1. Never pretends to be something she isn't.
    2. Speaks her mind.

    Life is like that. It takes time to learn to honor yourself. I like what Sheri and Nellie said. Very thoughtful comments.

    Thanks for sharing. It took me till I was 60 to realize that the most important person for me was ME. I guess I had enough of being used as a doormat for so, so many years. I finally took control of my life instead of letting others control it. So thanks for reminding me that I have to keep caring about myself first. emoticon emoticon

    I spent so many years fighting to continue working, giving in to my parent's bullying, letting others take away my rights, and hating every minute of all of it. I finally realized my health had become so awful that I couldn't do my job as well as I wanted to, that if my health got any worse I would not survive it. I made a choice that no one - especially my parents - should be allowed to bully me and take away my rights. I chose to put myself first and fight for my needs before giving into everyone else's wants. I'd say being in my early 30s it was time, but it's better than waiting longer or until it was too late.

    Be true to you. Live your truths and honor your needs. Learn to accept then love who you are inside, and forgive the mistakes you make. These are all things we should be doing for ourselves!

    The older I get, the more I realize I am better for others when I am true to myself.

    I think that sometimes we go through stages of self-discovery. I now feel comfortable with who I am as a servant to the Lord, but it took me a while and a lot of mistakes in the journey.
