Nobody Else But You...

The only person you can ever be is you; nothing more and nothing less. Trying to change who you are is like plunging a ball under water; the harder you push it down, the harder it wants to come back up.

We need to make peace with our weaknesses, while giving permission for others to be themselves. No one should act or behave the way you want them to because indubitably, there is no one way to act or behave. Letting ourselves and others off the hook opens up our capacity for acceptance. And, when there's acceptance, of not only our similarities but differences as well, what a wonderful world this will be.
