"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ----- Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss, what a genius! Children may love his books but, I'm convinced that, if more adults read them it would be a much better world.
Be who you are!
Last weekend I had something very unexpected happen, not just once, but a couple of times. My first instinct was to wonder "what did I do" . Later, when reflecting back, I discovered it wasn't what I did, it was what I didn't do! Be myself.
I have so many parts of who I am that I'm very proud of. I also have a few others that I'd just as soon forget. All together it makes me...well...me. The problem ocurred because I took one of my parts and magnified it until it seemed there was nothing else to me. Why did I do it? I thought that's what the other person wanted. If they're happy, I'm happy...right?
Right...for a little while.
It's extremely hard to be who you're not. It is possible to fake it for a while but, ultimately, who you are is going to come out and someone's likely to get hurt. In this case, that someone was me. If only I would have found that quote sooner. Dr. Suess, where were you when I needed you?
Be who you are...what a genius!
