Her 𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐜 true self. ⁣

 Being who she wants to be by choice, and on purpose.⁣

Doing what she wants to be doing simply because she wants to be doing it. ⁣

Not because it is the "𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵" thing to be or do. ⁣

Not because it is the "𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘳" thing or what is expected of her by peers, society, the environment, her parents, her spouse, her kids, or 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘧𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘴. ⁣

Doesn't that sound amazing to you? ⁣

Wouldn't life be so much easier if we could just be ourselves, and not worry about what everybody else in the world thought about us.⁣

Not care if they thought we were selfish, rude, stylish, smart, well-off, or any of the things we feel like we need to pretend we are?⁣

Why do we care what other people think so much?⁣

Why is their judgment of who we are somehow more important than who we know we really are?⁣

Only 𝐘𝐎𝐔 know the real 𝐘𝐎𝐔.⁣

Others may judge but their judgment is 100% about them and actually has nothing about you, so why do we care?⁣


The truth is, you will never be liked by everyone, so why try?⁣

The most important person you need to impress in your life is yourself.⁣

The most important person you need to have loved you in your life is 𝐘𝐎𝐔. ⁣

Isn't it time to let go of the fear of judgment?⁣

Isn't time to step into the real you?⁣

And love who that is.⁣

The answer is 𝐘𝐄𝐒.⁣
