A dear friend and valued mentor of mine Mick Sobczak — someone who I enjoy seeing their status updates because of the wisdom I find within — recently shared the following, “Adults in today’s world play pretend more than children do.”
Unfortunately, I agree. I believe far too many of us are busy pretending for the sake of others, although with seemingly good intentions, at the expense of ourselves.
I get it… it’s tougher to be yourself in a world you’re constantly reminded of how you’re not par for the course. All the advertising around us is built on the foundation of our failures.

But tough or not, you have best find the courage to be yourself anyway… it’s the only world we have.
“Be yourself, everyone else is taken.”
