What a profound statement. While it sounds so simple, it seems as though it is one of the most difficult things for most people to do. But why? Why is it so hard to be yourself? The explanation is simple really. Sad but true, many of us just don't like the who we are.
I Was That Guy
I know this because for years I was the person that didn't like himself. I was always striving to be someone else. Always compromising myself in one way or another to fit. It was hard work and it was exhausting. As I reflect back on those years, not being my true self was one of the ingredients that played a role in me hitting rock bottom in 2008.
So what changed? Hitting rock bottom was an eye opener for me and when I made my call for help to Sheila Butchart and started my healing journey, she was the one that made me aware of my uniqueness, all the things that were special about me and all the energy I was using trying to be someone else. She also pointed out on numerous occasions that being someone else was robbing the world of me and my gifts and by being me I could be a gift to the world and it would be a lot less work.
"Don't try so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out."
My wish for you is that you will embrace your uniqueness, you will shine your light, you will love who you were created to be and you will give the gift of YOU to the world. We are all waiting.
