If you hide behind a mask or act like you were someone else, you are incarcerated.
However, if you do not pretend, you feel free.
It's as if you emerge from your caterpillar cocoon and see the light as a new born butterfly. The newfound freedom will lend you wings and you feel like you can fly.
Nothing feels better than saying what you think and doing what you want. This freedom - to always be your unique self - will make you happier than ever.
2. You'll make true Friends
“A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself" -Jim Morrison
If your girlfriend accepts you as you are and vice versa, you are true friends.
A true friend will criticize you when necessary, but still supports you in everything you do.
A true friend defends you even when you are not around and she will take on any challenge together with you.
A true friend talks to you about everything and yet you feel comfortable when you sit next to each other for hours and remain silent.
True friendship is one of the most beautiful things in the world, so keep it close to your heart.
3. You'll make better decisions
Make decisions without wanting to please everyone or thinking about what others might think of you.
Decide as you want and base your decision only on your own feelings and thoughts.
Such decisions suit you best and will not only make your life better but, more fullfilling in the short term and especially in the long term.
4. You'll be more confident
Be yourself and happy about your uniqueness and you will notice how you become more confident.
When you get to the point where you stand behind everything you do and say, everyone will notice your confidence.
Such confidence gives you more respect and makes you more attractive!
