Being yourself will test the old adage that claims "blood is thicker than water".
Being yourself will create a tempest that will chase your "fair weather friends" into hiding.
Being yourself will separate the real "men from the boys", boys who simply wear men's clothing but live life as cowardly children.
Being yourself will always remind you that for better or for worse,"wherever you go, there YOU are."
But what choice do you have? You can't help but be yourself, because in reality that's who you really are!
Oh, You can choose to Pretend to be someone you're not. And in so doing you can keep family members who don't love you but instead love who they want you to be. You can keep all of those friends who give to you only for what they can get in return. By pretending to be someone you're not you can continue to play games with fellow pretenders who are too afraid of their own shadows to ever face the blazing light of self-examination!
You can do that...but at what cost?
Yes, there is a cost greater than the loss of family, friends, community and comfort!
If you pretend, you will forfeit the ONLY thing that is completely and uniquely yours....Yourself.
Being yourself is your gift to...yourself!
