The cost of betraying ourselves is ridiculously high.
It makes us uncomfortable, depressed, and upset. It loses our health—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It takes many things—like friends, money, job, or customers—away from us. We can no longer trust ourselves, and that affects everything in our life.
To be ourselves is the only way to stop paying the price. The world around you wouldn’t change immediately, but if you keep being yourself, things will begin to change—slowly and surely.
