Dear Daughters, The Whole Truth to Being Yourself

Dear Daughters,

Be yourself!

Don’t let people tell you what you should like, how you should behave, what you can “be when you grow up.”

You decide!

I am sincere when I encourage you to base your decisions on personal preferences and not on what society deems “proper for a girl”. I am sincere when I tell you not to make decisions solely to please others. Making decisions with the intention of making someone else happy ensures that you will be miserable. Essentially, you are lying to yourself. And we all know that one lie, leads to more lies in order to support the original lie.

That being said, I want to tell you the whole truth.

Choosing to be yourself does not shield you from hurt. People will judge you. People will talk about you, sometimes behind your back, sometimes to your face. People will make rude and ignorant comments about you/to you. In the pursuit of popularity sometimes a friend may choose not to be herself, and you could get hurt in the process. Sometimes you will choose not to be yourself.

On the contary, choosing to please others does not shield you from hurt either. People will still judge you. People will still talk about you, sometimes behind your back, sometimes to your face. People will still make rude and ignorant comments about you/to you. A friend may still hurt you. You will undoubtedly hurt youself.

Which sounds better to you?

I will ALWAYS be there for you and I will always love you NO MATTER what. Everyday I am amazed that three little girls, created by the same two parents, can be so awesomely different! These differences are what make you who you are. They are what makes you each so special. In the event that you choose not to be yourself I ask you to tell yourself the whole truth:

Was it truly worth it?
