How to Be Yourself :)

Be yourself is a phrase that is quite possibly the most commonly used phrase in the history of advice. Be yourself. It’s such a vague adage. What do they really mean when they tell you to be yourself? And is it really as easy as it sounds?

Steps:
1. Find yourself and define yourself on your terms. Oscar Wilde once said with his usual wit: Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
2.Avoid fixating on the past and not letting yourself grow/
3.Stop caring about how people perceive you. Some of them will like you and some of them won’t.
4. Be honest and open. What have you got to hide? We’re all imperfect, growing, learning human beings.
5. Relax. Stop worrying about the worst that could happen, especially in social situations. So what if you fall flat on your face? Or get spinach stuck in your teeth? Or accidentally head butt your date when leaning in for a kiss? Learn to laugh at yourself both when it happens and afterward. Turn it into a funny story that you can share with others. It lets them know that you’re not perfect and makes you feel more at ease, too. It’s also an attractive quality for someone to be able to laugh at themselves and not take themselves too seriously!
6. Treat yourself as you’d treat your own best friend. You value your friends and those close to you; well, who is closer to you than you are?
7. Develop and express your individuality. Whether it’s your sense of style, or even your manner of speaking, if your preferred way of doing something strays from the mainstream and produces positive outcomes, then be proud of it. Be a character, not a type.
8. Stop comparing yourself to others. If you’re always striving to be someone you’re not already, you’ll never be a happy person.
9. Follow your own style. The common thing a lot of people do is copy others’ actions because it seems like the better route to fit in, but really, shouldn’t you stand out?
10. Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and that some days you are the statue. People might raise eyebrows and even make fun, but as long as you can shrug and say „Hey, that’s just me” and leave it at that, people will ultimately respect you for it, and you’ll respect yourself. Yes, sometimes it will hurt when you’re teased. Just learn to ignore it. While this can be very difficult, and far easier said than done, try your best to flick it off your shoulder.
