Good Thursday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Pretending you’re someone other than who you are is exhausting and causes anxiety. If you’ve ever been in a situation where you are expected to act a specific way, you know how utterly fatiguing and boring you become. When you live your life acting like someone you aren’t you become someone you don’t like. People who live to please others end up pleasing no one, especially themselves. They get less respect, are less understood and, at the end of the day, they no longer know who they are or what they stand for. Anxiety disorders are sometimes caused by trying to be someone you aren’t and not feeling good about your performance. The part you play best is always yourself. Some people will love that person, and some won’t. You’re so much more than any one person’s opinion of you. Don’t allow their opinion to make you believe otherwise.
