Don't mold yourself

Always be yourself

Are you trying to be someone else?

Don't try to be what you are not!

People who try to be what they are not, are just fooling themselves and their characters.

You can try to be what you are not that won't make you happy.

What you are looking for in yourself will add to more changes, and you won't get the satisfaction of not being your true self.

When you construct a facade in behaving as someone else, that my friend will ruin your life.

A behavior that won't end in a good way.

What makes you that person you truly are?

Overall, you can't change who you are.

You end being that psychopath!

Your qualities and experiences make you special. When you behave this way you lose everything about yourself you ever knew in your life.

The reasons for looking different and for having unique features is what brings out the best in you.

Foolish thoughts can get you falling hard in your direction of negativity.

I know people who tried to change me in my foreign lifestyle, but I knew which path to follow, and I followed my path.

Certain individuals try to like me, they buy clothing in the same color as I have, and try to dress like I do.

These individuals don't realize their behaviors are hurting them emotionally.

No matter what they try to do, or how they behave, I am unique and don't want to be anyone else but myself. I have a different mindset about my life.

Life is not the same for everyone.

You succeed in the way you choose to move forward.

What works for you may not work for the next person.

Some people are control freaks, can multitask, and can be their worst own enemy.

Most individuals want to do what I do and try to live my life from my comfortable zone.

People who fail to think and do for themselves are weak and insecure.

I know of someone who behaves this way.

I can't help her because she wants to be someone she is not, and that to me is ugly and poor thinking.

It is right to be what you are and who you are and not to be someone else.

Why try to be someone you are not?

Do you think it is weird for someone to be that way?

I like to be the best version of me and not some false replica of another person.

My life is different and no one can be as I am.

Off-course, you can be anyone you want to be, but you shouldn't think of being someone you can't be. In other words, you can be a typist, a hotel manager, or a street dancer, and have no choice but to be yourself in these choices.

People try to be someone else but fail in their process.

They will fail because they can't be you from the inside out.

Changing the color of your hair, and dressing up as others do won't fit their characters.

Every individual has different characters and traits, and this varies from one person to another.

People don’t understand this and feel they can be anyone but themselves.

The following personality traits are part of each individual.






These traits are controlled in each individual, and some individuals don't control these traits making them as psychopaths.

If the individual succeeds in trying to be someone else they won't be happy as you, the original individuals would show happiness so naturally.

The person becomes uncomfortable when pushes the limit of any one of these traits.

Why does this happen to you?

You are trying to do something you usually don't do to yourself. The individual is creating an unusual act in their minds and this won't work out well.

What you don't usually do can destroy your self being.

The best is to be who you really are to avoid burning up.

One day you will realize you forgot about you, because you focused so much on someone else that you neglected being yourself.

Do you really want that for yourself?

You are only causing misery for yourself and your focus is going in the wrong direction.

For Example:

When you consume drugs you force the limit into your body and the end result is not good. You become ill from that experience.

One's mind and body is immensely defeated by their poor actions or decisions.

Sometimes you want to change and forget how badly you are affected by your lifestyle.

The change you make in the phase you are going through can be a happy one, or sad one.

If you make a change don't forget to enjoy life.

I never wished I was someone else.

I enjoy being myself.

Remember, you will never be someone else focus on yourself.

Your experiences have made you who you really are, and when you focus on being that someone else you tend to forget who you once were.

You push yourself in denial.

To pretend to be someone you are not is giving yourself false hope and can be depressing.

A person who fails to change anything in their lives fails to see themselves for who they are.

Always be happy to be yourself.

Have faith in yourself and be positive.

You don't want duplicated life you are the original person.

You can try whatever you want to be someone else but, at the end of the day you can't escape the truth.

All you have is yourself. Only you can take control of your life.

Are you afraid to be yourself?

Why dress up like someone else when what you wear is only for your body shape?

What you wear won't suit the other person who wants to be like you.

Their body shape makes the appearance look different.

Who are you?

Remain true to yourself.

You constantly try to change as the world is constantly changing and in that process ruin your true-self.

I have a unique perspective and not everybody can have that perspective.

Some people have difficulties being themselves. You need to stop worrying what others will think of you. Start living your true life.

It is most rewarding to just being yourself.

I chose not to think about how I will fit in but why should I fit in when people don't accept the way I am that easily?

How do you feel being someone else?

Does it make you happy or insecure?

People don't understand what you represent so they choose to disapprove your lifestyle.

Their way of thinking does not coincide with your way of think thus making you feel unaccepted.

Respect the values of others and think for yourself.

When you walk in your own path you will see the differences in yourself.

Don't turn back from your experiences just be yourself.

Get in touch with yourself from childhood years. It is a great experience to not lose touch with your inner self.

You have to appreciate yourself.

Enjoy the moment and know yourself in the process.

Be yourself in accepting you and in moving on to better lifestyles. Enjoy the time you have and live for the present.

Don't lose your culture and values or what represents your lifestyle.

You learn more about your childhood years and know yourself better.

Don't stop searching for what makes you feel the best.

Don't compare yourself to others that leads to resentment and criticism.

You should treat yourself as you would treat your best friend.

How to be yourself

Who are you?

What makes you that person you truly are?

See results

Be Yourself

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

      Clear truth Devika, "Enjoy the moment and know yourself in the process". A heart to heart words spoken to my present circumstances, and I have to work on it.

      ( In my attempt to be best fluent in English , translating from my native language, often sounds to me as if someone else is writing it, because in Slovak language we do not have as many words, as many I am using in English language, makes me wondering " who is this other me ?!)

      I never thought about being someone else. I know I wished for more money while I was growing up. I think we are all unique in our own way's, don't you? Different topic, makes me think!
