Choose You

What’s the greater risk? Letting go of what people think – or letting go of how I feel, what I believe, and who I am?
– Brene Brown

There is nothing worse then letting go of who you are in order to conform to the expectations of others.  Don’t become what others want, choose you.  choose youAlways choose you!

I sit in school every day listening to the kids talk to one another and about one another.  The snipe, and gripe about each other, constantly criticizing everyone who isn’t exactly the same as them.  They think they’re happy, but from the outside looking in, I see kids who are incredibly unhappy.  Why? Because they aren’t being true to themselves.  If I could tell them anything at all it would be to “choose you.”  “Choose to be who you want to be, not who others want you to be.

Choose you.  Live your life, chase your dreams.  Don’t give up who you are to be who or what others want you to be. Back in the ’80’s, singer George Michael of Wham! wore a shirt that said Choose Life.  I have to say that you shouldn’t just choose life you should choose your life.  Choose you!
