When is it okay to be yourself when no one is?

I think it's not only okay but important to be yourself ESPECIALLY when no one else is.

  • I love being my sarcastic, weird, self-concious, annoying, weird food eating, compassionate, dorky self and I wouldn't have it any other way :)

  • I am always myself. I have never felt like I need to pretend to be something/someone I'm not. If people don't like me for who I am - I could really care less.

  • why be someone else. i wouldn't know how to be someone else cause all i know about is who i am. thing is i think i'm great so i like to show that off and most people really like me for who i am. i've had people tell me they love me and i say back whats not to love. i think most people are themselves and sometimes i'm like hummm i don't like them. those are the people i rarely hang out with.

  • This is a hard adults we tell our kids to be themselves..but kids can be cruel. Honestly, I wish I could've been more popular in high school. If that meant "being" someone I wasn't, well then to some extent I would've. I would've pretended to care about certain bands or clothes or whatever and maybe tried harder to be "trendy"...I wouldn't have changed my values or anything, but I would've tried to fit in better. That opens the door to people who you might not have gotten the chance to know. Cause in that stage of life we do tend to rely on familiarity (people who like what we like and who look like we look) and don't give others a chance. But, maybe we seem just as hard to approach and if we would just relax and try the other-other side then we could make new friends that didn't meet us as "ourselves" Does anyone get what I'm saying?
