The prize that appears to be waiting for you on the other side of self-compromise is an illusion.
Nothing good can come from lying to yourself.
Any treasures you procure by disparaging or denying your real self are nothing more than fool’s gold
And the trouble you think you’re avoiding by denying who you truly are is only going to find you some other way.
The best way to play it safe is to take the risk of self-acceptance.
Be yourself. It actually works.
