We are all born originals yet most people die as copies.
Here are some of the symptoms that would indicate whether you are not being yourself:
// Wanting to please others
// Have a tendency to be “nice”
// Can be great listeners yet find it awkward to share your opinions and perspectives.
// Tend to avoid conflict or confrontational situations
// Tend to blend in & feel/be vanilla
// Feel invisible
// Feel uncertainty or experience self doubt
// Avoid being in the centre of attention – it feels uncomfortable
// Find it difficult to “receive” complements or gifts in life
// Tend to avoid risk & play it safe
// Have a tendency to isolate or withdraw from other people
// Choose safety rather than stepping up
