Have you ever noticed how children love to dress up? They love the thrill of pretending to be a princess or a butterfly. What about you? Do you still play make-believe? Do people see you for who you are, or do they see something different?
Often, we make the choice, allowing only a select few (family or friends) to see the “real” us. With everyone else, we put on a mask so they see what we want them to see (especially if our self-confidence is low). They may see a happy face that actually hides a ton of pain or insecurities.
I want you to be your best. A good place to start is to acknowledge and embrace the real you. And proudly display it to the world. Yes, for many it’s hard because we don’t want to get hurt, it’s just easier to put up a front. But living this way, you bury the woman you’ve always wanted to be.
You owe it to yourself, your friends, and you family to not keep yourself under wraps. Today, ditch your old self-imposed costume for a new, better version…the real you!
