It’s been more than a month since I have written an Unapologetically Real post, it’s about time. Although I am doing great at being Unapologetically Real and Unapologetically Myself all the time these days.
I must say that I have been so unapologetically real that I haven’t even thought about writing a post about it.
Doing so has proven to be freeing!
“Follow your heart, listen to your inner voice, stop caring about what others think.”― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
Because caring about what others think no longer suits me,
I hang out with whom I choose,
watch what I want to (or don’t watch at all),
follow or don’t without care,
friend or unfriend,
believe what resonates with me,
and follow my heart.
I can spot fakery a mile away (you thought I typed fuckery, didn’t you? Well I can spot that as well…)
“The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.”― Leo Buscaglia
Being unapologetically real has made my life easier.
I no longer look behind to see if others are looking
or to listen for what they are saying.
I do not care.
I no longer have room for individuals who would stab one in the back with the same sharp-edged tongue that they use to tell everyone how much they care.
“How many more of us are faking the facade? How many more of us are pretending to be something we’re not? Even better, how many of us will have the courage to be ourselves regardless of what others think?”― Katie McGarry, Dare You To
I no longer have room for individuals who would tell me
how to live my life,
what to do,
and in which manner I should do it.
I am finally, finally, finally,
comfortable in my own skin,
with my own brain,
all of my self.
“To be one’s self, and unafraid whether right or wrong, is more admirable than the easy cowardice of surrender to conformity.”― Irving Wallace
For the first time in my life.
I have no regrets
because everything that
has happened in my life
taught lessons that
led me to this place
“The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.”― Lao Tzu
Everyone I have met
has taught me what kind of of people
to accept or reject
in my life.
Every occurrence that I viewed
was a catapult
to exponential growth.
It is so much easier to be unapologetically real
than to try to be someone I’m not…
It’s the perfect freedom!
