Why can’t I lead like that?
Wish I had her fashion sense.
I wonder what people would say if I acted like that?
Maybe I should change my approach to be more like his?
Remember to say it like that next time.
I need to publish in that journal, too.
She did. People are expecting me to, also.
It’s exhausting trying to be everyone or what I think everyone wants me to be; so, I just have to be me. Yes, I can improve and learn from others. But no one else has my specific points of view, past experiences, or future goals and ideas. It has taken me a long time to learn this lesson, and yes, sometimes I revert back to being my everyone-except-who-I-am-excellent-at-being self. Then I snap out of it.
So snap out of it. Be you.
