Talks With Theresa Marie: Being Yourself

Welcome back to another Talks With Theresa Marie! This month is about Being Yourself. In this post, I’m going to be sharing why I think being yourself is important and why you should never be afraid to show who you truly are.

I think a lot of people actually struggle with being themselves. We all want to fit in. We all want to be like someone else. But, why when you can be yourself? I think ‘being yourself’ is the hardest for kids-teens. Every kid wants to be like the next, wants to have the best toys etc. I think many kids feel they need to act like everyone else in order to fit in, especially in school. If you’re ‘different’ you’re seen as weird. Which shouldn’t be the case. You’re not being ‘different’ you’re being yourself.

I personally love always staying true to myself. I feel so much better when I am me, and not someone pretending to be me. But, I am guilty. In the beginning of high school, I was definitely trying to be like everyone else. I always wanted to be popular, and be the best friend I could be. Which probably made me be a little fake at times. I thought who I was, was me, but it wasn’t. I didn’t know who I was until senior year and that’s okay, but now that I look back I wish I knew who I was from the beginning.

You always hear “be yourself and everyone will love you” but, sometimes that’s not how society works. It’s 50/50. Some will love you, some will judge you. That’s life. I say who cares, be yourself anyway. Let them judge you. If you’re really passionate about something then be passionate about it openly. Stop worrying about everyone else and what they think of you. Just be yourself and you’ll be okay.

Don’t be afraid to show who you really are. Yes, you might lose friends and/or be judged, but that doesn’t matter. In the end, you really only have yourself anyway so you might as well know who you are and being that person.

Well my little rant is over lol. I hope you enjoyed this Talks With Theresa Marie. Stay tuned for another one at the end of September.


Hello loves! My name is Theresa Marie. I am a 21 year old college student, living in NY. I love iced lattes, animals, the fall and winter seasons, fashion, beauty, diys and food!
I started this blog in January of 2017 so that I can share the things I love and have a place for my passion of writing. Theresa Marie Daily (TMD), is a place of comfort, where you can come for recipes, beauty tips/favorites, see my personal style, fashion tips, lifestyle tips/tricks, diys, and other miscellaneous posts. I have a category called “Talks With Theresa Marie” (TWTM), where each month, I post about an occurring issue, or something random that I just feel like talking about, and I give my opinion/view on it. TWTM, gives you a personal insight on who I am and my beliefs/opinions on certain things. I hope to inspire each and every one of you to go outside the box with your food, lifestyle and personal style, and just enjoy life. Thank you so much for following along and reading!

    Great post. It took me awhile to feel confident and to just be myself. But now, life couldn’t be better.
