Yesterday I heard a song that I first heard in my youth, and it inspired me to create a meme and write this post. The song was True Colors by Cyndi Lauper. It has a lot more meaning to me these days than it did back then.
I believe a lot of women are hiding their true colours, to keep other people happy, and I don’t want you to do that. I want you to bring them out into the open. Show them to the World. Flaunt them.
You’re beautiful as you are!
Don’t let what you think others mean, or what they say, change who you are. Don’t sacrifice your personality, style, opinions, and passions. There’s too much unhappiness in the World already. Why should you make yourself feel miserable?
- Laugh, dance, sing, paint. Do whatever makes you happy.
- Dress for yourself, not for others. Forget all the age, body type, and colour coordinating advice.
- When you have an opinion, speak it.
- If you want to dye your hair purple, do it.
Why crawl when you can fly?
If you’re not happy with where your life is heading, don’t let it stay that way for too long, do something about it. Living your life as who you truly are, is so much more fulfillling than trying to fit into boxes created by others.
If you’re more of an extrovert, get social. If you’re more of an introvert, make people respect your need to be alone. Don’t do what doesn’t work for you.
The right people will love you for who you are. Nobody will love you for pretending to be someone else.
I hope this got you thinking. Do me a favor and share it wherever you can, so those that need it get to see it, and leave me a comment below with your thoughts on this.
