    Easier

    It's so much easier being yourself than being someone you're not.  You have to be "ON" all the time and I'm thinking that it can be pretty tiring. I like me, so I'm going to be me all the time.

    The core of your true self is never lost.

    Let go of all the pretending and the becoming you've done just to belong. Curl up with your rawness and come home. You don't have to find yourself, you just have to let yourself in :)
