Don't be yourself! Most of us have some or many aspects of ourselves we loathe. So stop trying to be yourself. Rather, be the person you fantasize and imagine yourself being at your best. Being yourself is doing the same stupid shit over and over and wondering why things aren't working the way you want them to. It's not always easy or comfortable, and it's not a quick process, but you'll grow into being that person you always wish you were if you persevere and practice.
Being "yourself" is a crock of shit! It's flowery and sounds pretty, but it's false! That's what you've always been, and always will be: self-defeating or perfectionist, rebel to a fault or lost in following the crowd, self-loathing or narcissistic, sometimes we are both of these at once! For most of us we are "being ourselves" and that's not working out. Be your best self, that fantasized Superhero you imagine yourself being when your mind is far off in daydreams of what everyone tells you you "can't" do! That person that doesn't press snooze, resists the donut, and volunteers with sick kids. Do the hard stuff, the outside your comfort zone, have-to-learn-and-grow-to-get-it-done-stuff, following your heart and values when it goes against the grain, and it's scary and makes you want to vomit in your mouth a little, or maybe even follow protocol when you've always done things "your" way; don't sell out, but if you need a license to drive the bus then get it. And it won't be perfect, you'll fail, and sometimes it will hurt, at least you're trying and learning. AND you'll be attempting to be the Super Mario of your World, go after your dreams, and live passionately. Fuck being "yourself", that's the "I'm fine", "we're great", "that's nice", phoney baloney, half-assed, wishy washy, cop-out life that's keeping you miserable. We never know when our GAME OVER is, have the courage to create your awesomeness or die trying!
