Be yourself?

Are you proud of who you are and what you are? Once my teacher wrote in my notework for the last day of school and she says " Always be "you" as you are special the way you are" I find these words very assuring.

I would say, for the most part, I am happy with who I am. I know there are a lot of ways I can improve .... work needed here! I am comfortable enough to be 'in' the crowd without following it. I much prefer being an original than a copy.

Yes we should be ourselves instead of just a copy to others.

I wouldn't say I'm proud to be who I am, but I am happy with myself. I think it is terribly sad that so many people think that they have to be someone else, but I think a lot of that wears off as you get older.

If we change it should be for ourselves instead of for someone else and I think the time we give to ourselves is totally worth enough.

I am very proud of myself. Never have I let the opinions of others affect my personality. I actually strived to be different. I dodn't want to fit in with the norm. No cliques for me. I was me, and if people didn't like me, oh well. As a result, I am happily married, have been for 10 years now, I have four beautiful daughters, and the good friends I had back in school are still here for me. I may not be a beauty queen, I'm not rich, and I am still the girl raised in the country with next to nothing, but I am me. God made me in the image He wished, and for that alone I am special. What's not to be proud of?
