Has this happened to you? Have you lost who you were while listening to what others "think" you are? I have too. And I will say it's not always easy to get ourselves back but I do think it's possible.
You know yourself better than anyone else. You know your struggles and your strengths too. YOU KNOW who you are...the good and the bad and even the ugly too. You know your dreams, goals and ambitions and you know your fears. No one else knows these things about you...only you.
When someone wants you to be anything other than who you are...don't! It's not for your benefit...but for theirs. It suits their life and their purpose...while you lose who you are. DON'T!
