“Be yourself, everyone else is taken.” ~ Oscar Wilde
I am not special, just ordinary.
Many may look or act like me, but I am not the same as them.
I don’t try to be like them and I see no need to surrender to conformity.
I know I’m better at being myself than anyone possibly can.
I am not perfect, just unique – one and only.
I embrace myself fully – the good, the bad, and the ugly, without pride or apology.
I strive to be true to myself and to others, and when I fail to do so, I strive to own up to my failing.
I know that being authentic entails with being authentic about my inauthenticity.
I am who I am, not who I’m expected to be.
I’m comfortable in my own skin.
