    Great advice! Being yourself releases you from others expectations and is the ultimate gift to you.

    1. Living the way you want to live will definitely make you a happier person.

  2. Zineb says:

    Sadly we live in this vicious cycle where we’re told to be ourselves but to fit in at the same time.

    Love always,


    1. As you grow, you will realize the opinion of others is secondary. Your own opinion is what truly matters. You may even lose people along the way but you will gain knowledge about the type of people who deserve to be in your life.

    I love your honesty. I’ve always been the type of person who loved who I was no matter what others thought. I have had so many people ask me how I do and I just could never find the right answer. You did it though. You’re awesome!


    1. This is a lesson that I learned over time. Thank you!

  5. Sometimes we know what should be done but are afraid of the consequences that one may have to bear. But one must believe in oneself and do whatever seems right.
    Thank you for the amazing post 🙂

    1. With time you will gain the strength to not care what others think. You happiness is the most important never forget that.

    I love it! Very nice. I’m a true believer in being myself… that’s what I do best. Thanks for putting it out there!

    1. I am glad you liked. More people need to realize that being their self is the to their happiness.

    This is great! I always feel like I’m not making enough money at my job working with kids but I love it so much!

  8. Love this! It’s so relevant for me right now. I actually just wrote a post about my struggle to be true to myself and live the life I love despite the fact that my parents and my friends don’t understand it. I’ve made the decision to move away from the city where I grew up to pursue a simpler life out in the country with my husband and daughter. We grow our own food and live a frugal lifestyle that allows us the freedom to not have to work non-stop to pay for everything. But my family and friends, for the most part, don’t understand this or take it seriously because to them, money, job title and status equals success. It has been a tough journey learning to stop caring what other people think and do what’s best for myself and my own little family. I’m still working on it. But I’m getting there slowly but surely. I think this is something we all struggle with at one time or another. Thanks for the post:)

    Beautiful write up!
    Yes we should get rid of the masks and be unapologetically ourselves!
    Love and happiness??

    1. Being your authentic self will make you happier than you know.

  13. Jamie says:

    I don’t know how I got so lucky today. I did not get online looking for blog posts on how to live a happier, stress free life, but this is the second post I have found and I love it! The only thing I could wish is that saying what you feel wouldn’t get you in trouble in the work force, and that every job could be one you’re proud of. Eventually I will land that job

    1. Speaking up at work can be stressful but sometimes you have to do it if you want to gain the respect you deserve. Just be respectful and confident in what you are saying when you do speak up.

  14. Cher Gilroy says:

    I made a decision to love and support myself not too long ago. Now I am much happier. Not depending on people to make me happy but choosing to be happy. Thank you for this!

    1. That’s great Cher! I too had to learn to stop trying to please other people and start being who I am. Thank you for such a touching comment.

  15. Komal says:

    Friends, new people and parents, I’ve experienced all these situations. I get too self-critical of myself and start feeling guilty for not fitting in. It’s a work in progress but I’m practicing being proud of who I am. Great post as always.

    1. Thank you, Komal. It took me some time but I realized that I need to make sure that I am happy with who I am. It was too draining trying to please other people all the time.
