Being yourself

I happened upon a little quote tonight that a lot of you have probably heard before. But I can see so much truth in it, I thought I would share it here:

"Be who you are and say what you feel...
Because those that matter... don't mind...
And those that mind... don't matter."

I'm glad I have lots of people in my life with whom I can be who I am and to whom I can say what I feel and they don't mind. Such freedom to be able to be like that with people!

I used to have social phobia and worried about everything I said and what people thought of me. But no more. Today I feel free to be who I am. I'm so very grateful about that.

...just a little tidbit of a thought.

I echo your thoughts, Marja. It is so wonderful and relaxing to be around people who love and accept us in this way. We need not fear their being judgmental about what we say. So we can enjoy the friendship and just be ourselves.

Interesting post you have here. Social phobia is not easy to overcome. But you can learn from www.whatcausespanicattacks.comabout simple prevention methods. Can be pretty handy.

I think that's because you have so many years of experience of dealing with it. I'm still paralyzed by much of my social phobias but I am just now learning to cope with them.
