It Is Better To Fail In Originality, Than To Succeed In Imitation
Not knowing who you are will make you become someone else. Whether if being you hurts, makes you laugh or makes you cry – Just Be You. If everyone in the world “picked” someone else to be, there would be a “higher number” of imposters in the world. There would also leave no room for honesty, honor, loyalty and trust. How? Well if you met me and I am telling you that “my name is” Valarie D. Coleman / Valarie Cole / V.D. Coleman BUT I am talking like Hillary Clinton, dressing like Michelle Obama, walking like The Queen of England, living like an Omish woman, eating like a size 2 model etc. etc. etc. The point is, when will you EVER meet, fellowship and know V.D. Coleman?
If I am being at least 3 or 4 people and you have everyone else doing the same thing – we are all walking around being who and doing what?
At the end of EVERYDAY, you are you. You wake up being YOU, you go through your day being YOU, You come home being YOU and you go to sleep at night being YOU. So why not enjoy being you? You have to take the time and find out who you are so you are able to see what you like and what you do not like about yourself…. bottom line, that is why individuals try to become other people or grasp onto charachteristics of them.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth…..
Wanting to be someone else, is the waste of the person that you are……
Learn to be what you are, and learn to live with all that you are not………
Don’t live somebody else’s life. Your own should last you a lifetime!
Individuality is the definition of freedom…….
It is the chiefest point of happiness that a man is willing to be what he is………
Accept everything about yourself, You are you and that is the beginning and the end–no apologies, no regrets…………
This is who I am. Nobody said you had to like it………………..
I was once afraid of people saying, “Who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say, “This is who I am.”
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind…………..
Folks may call you different, they may say that you can’t win, but it’s not what’s on the outside – It’s what you have within!
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation……………
