"Remind yourself that you cannot fail at being yourself" Wayne Dyer

One more reason to be yourself. 

I have talked at great length about the importance of each and every one of us. About how we are all pieces of a puzzle, and all connected. You matter, you fit, you have a position meant for you alone. 

Regardless, a great majority of people spend their entire lives in disguise. There is so much fear surrounding the idea of being who they really are. They have been programmed that it is unsafe to put their face forward and constructed a mask early on. It is a survival technique that is common. Eventually, for most, when they feel safe enough, the mask will come off. In the meanwhile, it is almost impossible to get a 'read' on where they are coming from or who they are. Fear is keeping them from exposing their true nature and stunting their growth. 

The voyage of discarding fear is difficult, yet this is your 'raison d'etre', (reason for existing). The joy that comes from being your own human being is transformational. Fear will no longer control you and/or your actions, YOU will be YOU and that is more than enough. You cannot fail at being yourself. 

It is said that people don't change, 'a leopard doesn't change it's spots'. I feel people heal and grow, and with that comes change. People DO become who they really are, who they are meant to be. The mask DOES come off.
