It’s a very old quote and has been over used but I still find it relevant today. There are so many pressures around either peer pressure or media pressure or just pressure you put on yourself to follow the crowd, to be who you think other people want you to be or do what you think other people want you to do. You feel you need to change or not do what you love or make sure you life follows a certain path but there’s no right way to do things, no right way to be or live – we all have to follow our own paths, our own hearts, our own dreams.
But what does being true to yourself mean? I think it’s about finding out who you are and loving that person and staying true to them. It’s not easy to do but I think finding that strengh is key to being happy with yourself and your life. As you know, last week I struggled with self-doubt and got a bit lost but I realised that even though I might fail, I’m trying to do something I want to do, I’m trying to find my own way and that’s far better than settling for something else.
Don’t lose it all in the blur of the stars
Seeing is decieving but dreaming is believing
Its okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing
Just be true to who you are
– Jessie J “Who you are”
How do you stay true to yourself? How easy do you find it to follow your own path?
