What does it meant to be you?
Are you honest with yourself or hiding behind what you think you should be?
Life is so much easier when you can just be you; all of you; not the bits people think you should be, but all the amazing little pieces that make you – unique.
We’re all special in our own way and need to find a way to show it, to own it, to be you.
Here are the quotes to inspire you to be you
‘You are who you are, Love yourself, Cherish your qualities and marvel at your uniqueness.’
‘Let others see you in the things you love most about yourself.’
‘Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those that matter don’t mind.’
‘What is really hard, and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.’
‘It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.’
‘Find out who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone.’
‘True happiness doesn’t come from being someone else but from being our best selves.’
Loretta Hill in ‘The Grass is Greener’
‘The more you hide yourself from others, the more you cage yourself in. Be open, Be vulnerable, Be brave, Be Free.’
‘Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.’
‘I don’t owe anything I am to anyone else… I’m me. And that’s plenty good enough.’
Emilie Richards in ‘Rising Tides’
‘Let go of who you think you should be… just be who you are in this world, your real self.’
Zoe Miller in ‘The Compromise’
‘You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.’
Danielle La Porte
‘… stay true to yourself and your own feelings. Don’t do things because you think it’s what’s expected.’
Fiona McCallum in ‘Finding Hannah’
‘You should stop trying to be what you think you should be. You’ll do exactly as you are.’
Deborah Burrows in ‘Taking a Chance’
‘When you accept yourself for who you are, you’re free.’
Leesa Bow in ‘Winning the Player’
