“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. ” Hardy D. Jackson

Being true to yourself is the ultimate path to joy. It’s taken me awhile to figure this out. I spent my younger years being myself but not truly listening to myself.

Each year that goes by I get a little more sure, but it’s always a work in progress.

 

Helpful Tips For Being True To Yourself:

Be who you are, be your genuine self
Follow your own value system and common sense
Listen to the advice of others, but make up your own mind
Recognize, appreciate, and develop your unique talents
Stand up for what you believe in and you will gain respect
Know that being ‘different’ is a gift
Understand that you are enriching others by being yourself


How do you stay true to yourself?
