If you haven’t heard it from someone else already today, I like you just the way you are.

Those are words I’ve heard many times from Mr. Rogers and is the inspiration for today’s #jammingwithjason #podcast episode. It’s OK to be who you are, in fact as Oscar Wilde would say” be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

And really if some people are going to judge and not like you regardless of what you do, you might as well BE who you really are authentically, and do what you want to do. That way you avoid so much of the guilt and shame most people experience by pretending to be someone they aren’t. That’s a broken strategy that has you wake up later in life full of regret, having lived a life of shoulda-woulda-couldas, being a fake, instead of living an authentic life of no regrets.
