Being Real Quotes

quotes about being realYou really have to look inside yourself and find your own inner strength, and say, “I’m proud of what I am and who I am, and I’m just going to be myself.  ~Mariah Carey

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. ~Dr. Suess

Being real is like being a lady… if you have to tell people you are… you aren’t. ~ Drake

These being real quotes all reflect the simple fact that if you are real with yourself, and true to your beliefs and desires, you are living a genuine life.  The hard part is, fully trusting yourself and not caring what other people think of you.  But if you can let go of these two simple things that are holding you back, you have so much freedom and an interesting life to embrace.

How often do you do things because you think your friends will approve?  Or because you don’t want to look weird?  Think about why you are doing these things – is it because you fear rejection, or you think your friends won’t like you anymore if you act like yourself?

If your friends really are your friends, then they will like you for who you really are, and if they are not, that opens you up to making real friends who will like the REAL you!  It is a hard step to make, but if you want to be real, and live the life you want to live, you have to stand up for you are.  Remember, you are so cool in your own unique way – and if you let it shine through people will take notice.  Being genuine is a rare trait and one that people are attracted to.

What do you think about being real?  Do you know anyone who is really real???
