I love the quote of Oscar Wilde: Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
A friend described she was tired of holding herself back. She felt most of the time she was trying to please others, putting herself down, was afraid of failing. As a result, she felt she was far from creating a fulfilling life.
If you feel this way at times, the biggest favour you can do yourself is showing up. Here some suggestions on how to do so and be yourself.
Be authentically you
Don’t try to be anyone else but yourself as others will undoubtfully see through that game and fail to connect meaningfully to you.
Instead connect to your powerful self, that wise voice inside you who knows you and believes in you and act from that energy.
