Be True to You

A few days I thought back to something that I had written in 1994, when I was 16.

6 years later, in 2000, I was in the middle of a horrible relationship and wanting more in my life, so I wrote it out and posted it up beside my mirror where I could see it every morning and every night before bed. It inspired me everyday back then, in a sense giving me the strength that I needed to move forward from where I was. I was thinking that it would be a good thing to put up again, as a mantra of sorts.

I had kind of put it on the back burner, until just now. Feeling frustrated at my lack of words, I thought it would be a good idea to pull out my “Old Blue Binder” and share one of my old pieces; it had been a long time since I had done so…Well, I opened it up, randomly, and what piece should appear?! The same one I had been thinking about! So, there’s my sign; it’s obviously the PERFECT time to share it with you and put it back up on my wall!

(I am posting it as it was then, no editing…)

Hope you like it!

Learn to be
Who you want to be,
Not who “Should” be.
There’s only one
Person you need
To make happy,
And that’s you.
Everything you
Say and do,
Effects your happiness.
So be true to you.
Do what you
Have to do,
To make yourself happy,
Not what others
Want to make THEM happy.
You are who you are.
Accept it, respect it and
If need be, change it.
Don’t blame others
For problems you have.
Anything that goes
Wrong in your life
Is brought on by you.
So, learn to be
Who you want to be;
Do what it takes,
To make you happy.
