Welcome to the #FreeToBeYou studio! This studio was designed to spread the important message that it's okay to be yourself!
This studio was inspired by my own personal experiences in life and now it's time for me to share the important life lesson that I learned that changed my life and helped make me happy.
If you ever need to talk to me or anyone else here about anything, please feel free to! We will listen to you and help you. No one here will judge you for being you!
How Can I Participate?
Make a project showing the diversity of our world or a story that you may have about learning to be yourself! Make a project saying some unique things about yourself or why you will always choose to be you! Once you have a project created and shared (that is relevant to this studio), please post a link to it in the comment section. I will then review it and add it!
Want To Curate?
If you want to curate, all you need to do is comment telling me why you think you should be yourself or an experience that you've had where you didn't feel like you could be yourself, but then you figured out that you could.
Want To Manage?
I'm very sorry, but I won't promote anyone here. (Only my back-up account, @-AstarAnimations-. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Words of Inspiration
I don't know how many of you have ever felt like you need to change what you believe, how you act, or how you feel to get somebody to like you or to make somebody happy. But you should always remember that you were born you. You were made you for a reason and you should act like yourself to fulfill your full potential. Every single one of you out there is exactly who you are meant to be. Show it off to the world! Show the world how amazing you are! Be yourself! Don't ever let anyone tell you that you aren't who you're supposed to be and don't ever let anyone's words change how you act. If you feel like laughing, laugh. If you feel like crying, cry. As long as you are being yourself, nothing else in the world matters. Be you.
- "Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken."
- "When you're determined, you can change the world by just being you."
- "You're always you, you can't be changed by someone else's words."
- "A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you."
- "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not."
There was this one girl that I knew. I loved her and I wanted to be best friends with her more than anything in the world. I wanted her to consider me her best friend and I wanted to be a part of her group. At the time, she just considered me her average friend. The girl that she didn't say "Hi" to if I didn't say "Hi" to her first. I wanted to change that. I noticed that all her best friends were really really funny and outgoing. I wanted to be more like that so that she would like more. So I started to change how I acted and how I felt. And it made me unhappy and sad and closed off from the rest of the world. After trying for a while to be like one of her group, I eventually decided to accept the fact that if she didn't like me for the way that I was made, then I wasn't going to change for her. She wasn't worth changing for. We're still friends now and I'm closer to her now than I was before, but I am so happy that I was able to see the light and tell myself that it was okay to be myself. So I changed back into myself and I was a lot happier. And real friends will love me for who I am and I should never have to change for anyone just to please them. Life lesson learned.
