Being Me is Much Easier than Being You

by Nursetopia on February 23, 2011

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.
