be-you-be-true

Be you

Be true
And yes some people will hate you
But the ones who love you will really love you
One of my favorite teachers used to say:
People will dislike you no matter what
You will be disliked for you who pretend to be
You will be disliked for who you are
So why not just be yourself, it is less effort

I know what she means
And while on one level it is less effort
It can be way more scary to be ourselves, we risk true rejection
I think we imagine we can make up a more lovable version of ourselves
I know I did and sometimes still do
Which is kinda funny when you think about it
What makes the version of ourselves that we make up more lovable?
What qualities would that person have that would make them more lovable
than the person you truly are?
What I am finding is the more true I am to who I am
The more I let the real me come through
Yes, the more people don’t like me
But I am starting to find my people
And that, that feels so good
So my suggestion:
Be you
Be true

And love will find you
