I am not an expert in BEING YOU (is that a thing?!), I’m simply here to tell you how I do it.
It’s hard as fuck, no doubt, I still struggle on the daily, but if we don’t start somewhere you could loose yourself for ever.
1. Wear what the fuck you want.
I know, sometimes circumstance calls for “socially acceptable” outfits, i.e. weddings and funerals, but in general, wearing what YOU want to wear changes so many things! It helped me feel like ME, which hasn’t happened since I was below the age of 10 I’d say….
2. Be Grateful
It’s SO easy to get caught up in all the tough shit we have going on in life, focusing on that will for sure result in your inner you going into hiding. Try spending 10 minutes on a morning or before going to sleep, to think about what you are grateful for, the big and the small!
3. Be Human
This is one of our greatest powers, being human. We are made of STARS!
Ignore all the shit telling you to be a certain kind of someone, you can even ignore this blog! You be you in whatever way that is.
4. Own your opinion and be kind
These two things don’t always fall hand in hand, especially if our opinions differ greatly from others, however remembering to be kind even throughout a disagreement will result in both you and the other person feeling better about the situation. Who knows, you could even come to something you agree on, even if the bulk of your opinions clash!
// You deserve to be heard, never let anyone tell you your opinion doesn’t matter, because it fucking does!!
BE YOU IN WHATEVER WAY THAT IS.
