Be Authentically You

“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.

“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.”
