The Importance of Being True To Oneself.

It doesn’t matter where I go or who I meet, you can best believe I’m always me. Straight no chaser. I don’t believe in pretending, what you see is what you get. This morning in the Feed Your Dreams Clubhouse room, the question was asked what was it that made you hesitant to follow your dreams? And I said, the backstabbing, backbiting; the back anything.

In the eight years since I’ve been in this business I have been unfriended, unfollowed and un-everything you can think of. There was even a conversation dedicated to what an awful individual I was because I didn’t share a popular political opinion. And because of that, people deserted me in droves, about eighty, ninety people. Ones that were either unable to speak for themselves or just didn’t want to seem disloyal to the person or people that I didn’t share the opinion with in the first place.

Sure, I was upset by the whole incident. But thankfully, I got over it. Most people in my position would have backpedaled and said whatever they had to in order to gain favor with the ones who abandoned me in the first place. NOPE. I dance to my own beat and I follow nobody’s beat. I am on my own island and enjoy the sound of my feet walking away from things not meant for me. I also learned there’s no loyalty among people that have none.

I will not betray my principles. Even if it means I’m the only one who shares it. Because in the grand scheme of things it’s the only thing that matters, and my conscience is clear. And that, in my opinion, is why it’s important to be true to oneself. That’s it for now, until next time; where love resides-Temari
