19 Be Your Authentic Self

i can only be meIf you cannot be your authentic self in all your relationships, then you are setting yourself up for a life of dissatisfaction and misery.


Keep it simple, uncomplicated and real.

Bare in mind that being real does not mean being rude, disrespectful or dishonest, it simply means being your authentic self, whatever or whomever that is.


As for me…

i can only be me

I am a perfectly imperfect, beautiful, radiantly flawed work in progress & true. I am ok with that….Peace.

  8. hi rhapsody,
    thanks for your post.
    being yourself is important but not easy with so much peer pressure, pressure to conform from home,school, work and pressure to be a consumer.

  9. Hi Rhapsody,

    A wonderful observation and reminder for those who need it. I am proud to be an evolving work of art :).



  10. @michiko, Thank you and you are welcome.

    @kiitkat Thank you

    @Herrad You are so right, so much pressure to be other than we are that the biggest triumph is succeeding being oneself.

    @cocorivers Thats one of the keys to remain true to ourselves to be proud of our accomplishments big and small.

  11. Simple, uncomplicated and real..... Just what i need. Thanks for this post.

  12. @deolascope simple and uncomplicated is what i think we all aim for however human emotion has a tendency to create a maelstrom

  13. I absolutely live this! It isso beautifully written. I wish most people lived by this.


  14. @Josie Honey most people have the noise of so many people in their ear that they are lucky if they can hear the sound of their own voice long enough to follow what they dream and desire for their selves.
