Don’t be a fake.
‘Trying to be’ is way different from ‘being.’
Someone may say to you, “Be yourself.” It implies that you are not yourself, at least from his or her point of view. So you try to be yourself, and sometimes feel like you succeed to be yourself. Sometimes don’t.
But we have to be aware that we are always ourselves. It doesn’t matter if others can see it, or how they recognize it. It doesn’t matter what other people say about us either.
You are always you. No matter what happens or how you feel about it. Don’t try to be something or someone else.
