Being Yourself Quotes

This page is a collection of Being Yourself Quotes.

Being yourself should be the easiest thing to do, since there's no one better suited to being you than you.

Yet many people struggle with this and layer inauthentic behaviors on top of who they really are.

Just be yourself. Give it a try and you'll soon see, it's less stressful, and more energizing to be authentic. Try Wearing the clothes you like, listening to the music you enjoy, and speaking your mind. It's fun and will shake things up.

If you need some help, try answering the following questions.

What am i doing, why am I doing it, what do I want, why do I want it, and who am I?

Don't ask others for the answers - ask only yourself.

The questions above are simple and if you allow them too, they will strip away all that's false. Be warned you'll be left with an authentic, empowered, and unique you.

Enjoy the following Being Yourself Quotes.
