The Top 10 Quotes to Inspire You to Be Yourself

We all feel the pressures to conform throughout our lives -- to the expectations, values or worldviews of others, be it in our intimate circles or in society at large. In the short run, it can seem the easy way out to simply bend to the opinions of others in our pursuits of intimacy, acceptance and achievement. It's only in the long run that we realize this "success" can bring little happiness, because it's a kind made for the life of another.

The harder path, in the short run, is the one we chart ourselves. But down the road, the destination has our name inscribed above the doorway, with love and fulfillment waiting for us on the other end.


It's time you faced your fears and found the courage to build your future from the inside out. To aid you on your journey, here are our Top 10 Quotes to Inspire You to Be Yourself.
