"Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken."


Oscar Wilde said it best, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” This phrase always strikes a chord with me because I am so easily tempted to be someone I’m not. I play out scenarios in my mind where being someone else is better than who I currently I am.

And that’s a lie.

Who I am is enough. It’s exactly who I’m supposed to be. I am uniquely me. No one else has my personality, DNA, or skills. No one else is me.

I’m praying that I will be confident in who I am, comfortable in my own skin.

No one else can be you, and no one else can be me. So, I don’t want to waste any more time thinking it’d be better to be someone else. What about you?
