be who you are...

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

— Dr. Seuss

The works of Dr. Suess are well known to convey deep messages in a whimsical way. In today’s web 2.0 world we are inclined to censor and inhibit ourselves more than ever before. It’s foolish to do this because we might be blinding ourselves from a wonderful character trait or talent. This might lead to a feeling of unfulfillment. Sometimes we can’t help but overvalue the public opinion and discount our friends and family. That’s an unfortunate mismanagement of our priorities. In this powerful quote Seuss reminds us to be true to ourselves because the most valuable people will be there to support us. When we swallow our pride and embrace our strengths and weaknesses, we gain a sense of peace and freedom. Be free! Be yourself!
