Things to Stop Doing to Yourself – #5

Each day for the month of December, I’ll be posting one of Marc and Angel’s “30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself” with a little commentary from yours truly.

5) Stop trying to be someone you’re not. – One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

I think we can all agree that this is possibly one of the hardest rules to follow.  We’ve all at some point in our lives tried so hard to get others to like us that we lose ourselves along the way.  Maybe it comes with age, but know that you can be yourself and people will like you anyway.  Besides, pretending to be someone else will only end up with people finding out the real you – and they might not like a pretender.
