Just Be Yourself and Let You Shine Through

There is much to be said about you. You are one of a kind. You are unique. You are different from not only the way you look, but how you talk, think and interact with others. Does that mean there is something wrong with you? No, you are no different than anyone else except for the fact that you are completely different. That is the only similarity between you and everyone around you.

So what does this mean in the end? It means that you should never be ashamed of who you are and never worry about what others think of you. That isn't the easiest for some people. With all the criticism going around today, a lot of people are really concerned on how others portray them. I have always tried not to let what others think judge how I act, but there are times where their judgments, actions or words just cut like a knife and you can't help but let it bother you.

Since depression has set in this seems to be happening more and more recently. I know to live by the statement in the picture, but when you can't seem to get through one more day listening to all the people around you tell you how great they are and how awful you are, it makes living by the "Just Be Yourself" code very difficult. And if you are not the one feeling like this, please make sure you are not making someone feel like this. Everyone should be loved for who they are, not anything else. 

Lesson 2: You cannot change those around you, only yourself, and words that express anything else (you are too fat, you are too skinny, you need to wear more makeup, you don't make enough money, etc) cut deeper than any knife could ever. It cuts deep into the persons soul, creating more scars. Instead, say something nice and be sincere. Sincerity is key here. If you are sincere, you may just make the other person's day. And if you are the depressed person, remember to thank whoever says something nice and remember to live by "Just Be Yourself" no matter what.
