How To Be Happy Being Yourself. Be Honest and Fair With Your Wants and Needs To Help Others More Successfully

"Be Yourself, Everybody Else Is Taken"

Be who you are. So many of us now a days try to be something were not. It causes stress and anxieties that otherwise would not be there. Constantly trying to restrict ourselves to fit in to these stereo-typical types in order to portray a specific image to the masses, this is a lot of work and full-time job. Between social media, school, our social circles, are family and whatever else; if we want them to see us as something were not we must constantly keep up this false image like a lie that just keeps growing and becomes harder and harder to manage. It continues to grow and grow until it gets out of hand and finally the truth comes out (the truth always comes out..). This can make being happy nearly impossible, since the best way to be happy and worry free is to be who you really are, I mean who you REALLY REALLY are, there's no use lying to yourself either because in the long-run even though so many of us do it, it always turns out negatively.
    In the case of being yourself, eventually if you ever want to get close to anyone whether it's your family, a friends, or you fall in love then no matter, they are going to have to see who you really are. Who you really are is who you are when no one is around.
       If you are worried about how a friend or acquaintance will react or feel about you if they found out about a little quirk you have (maybe your a sci-guy) then you may need to reassess that relationship. You may not WANT to be close with those people you consider high and mighty but rude and ignorant. If your friends only like you for someone you are pretending to be then they are not really friends are they? Not true friends at least. Plus you'll attract more better friends if you just be yourself, no games, no charades. 

ALWAYS love yourself and embrace who you are. We are all goofy and a little strange in our own ways, we all believe that there should be a TV show made about us at some point. THAT'S what makes us all individuals, special, different, that's what makes us love to laugh and enjoy life. If you hold back being who you are in fear of others thinking your weird or strange, then the only person you are hurting is yourself. 
Not to mention you are taking away that persons chance to meet the real you, the unique one-of-a-kind person that you really are, robbing them of any ability to get close to the real you even if they wanted to. 

          Think about your good friends, the ones you cant stop laughing with when your around them, the ones that make you love life and appreciate the little things. Chances are they could probably be considered strange or a little weird in their own right. These nine times out of ten are the people at least when comfortable are truly being themselves. They inspire confidence and instill happiness in everyone they come across. They seem to have a super human power to make others happy and there's no way you could affect others that dramatically and positively. THAT'S WRONG. YES YOU CAN. 
Yes these people are special, but so is everyone in one way or another and we all have the capability and ability to be as happy as we want and radiate happiness and affect others in the same way these extremely passionate and happy close friends  have affected us. 
       They live worry free because they have no covers to keep up they're surrounded by people who love them for who they are no matter what. People gravitate towards them. When you are confident in yourself and not try to be anything you are not then you will always find happiness which is what ALL people want. Being true to yourself; fulfilling your wants and needs allows you to radiate positivity and genuine happiness to your close friends, loved-ones, and strangers. 

You can be as happy as you let yourself be.

I can not tell you how to be yourself or what decisions will be best for you. These are the questions that we must all strive to answer for ourselves through experience and trial & error. As long as you follow and stand by your morals and ethics, always being absolutely true to yourself; you're wants and needs, your need to help others, as well as feed your desire to love and be loved. Never trying to be something you are not, BUT ALWAYS TRYING TO BE THE BEST YOU, YOU CAN BE.  Constantly striving for improvement and growth with a conscious effort to smile and spread joy and positivity to everyone you meet no matter what. 
Then eventually you will be that person previously mentioned that you love to be around, not only just to your friends and loved ones but ever random person you come in contact with as well.

My own personal thought. " if you aren't being weird, you aren't being yourself."

My favorite thoughts:
"Be a character, NOT a type."

"Be yourself, everyone else is taken"
