Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Taken.

Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Taken.




Growing up, you may have heard statements such as "you have your mother's eyes, your father's broad shoulders, your grandpa's determination or your grandma's wisdom and gentle ways."

We have all experienced having our mannerisms, character temperaments and physical appearances compared to others past and present. Perhaps this is our way of establishing a connection with each other, providing a much needed sense of belonging.


Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

~ Oscar Wilde


The quote above is one of sound advice and deserves our full attention. Though it is inevitable that we will bear similarities to others, there is a real danger of falling into the trap of trying to be another version of someone else. But as the quote states quite clearly, that spot is already taken. We cannot and should not attempt to be replicas of other people.



However, in our celebrity obsessed culture, the young look to replicate the looks and characteristics of their idols, buying into the notion that this will somehow afford them popularity too. With many men and women alike opting for surgical enhancements and alterations in order to resemble this or that person, the concept of being ourselves seems to get lost in translation.


It's seems that we are either trying to be more like someone else or trying to avoid being compared to someone else. But finding our true unique selves cannot be discovered in the shadows of others. We must find our own identity without living in a state of constant comparisons. Comparing ourselves to others is like comparing apples and oranges. We are all different types of fruit, some sweet, some sharp and that's ok as variety is the spice of life.


It is true, you may be your mother's daughter or your father's son, but you are certainly not your mother or your father, they have already fulfilled that role, good or bad. Their strengths and weaknesses were their own and yes you may find some similarities in yourself but you are still your own person with your own unique experiences of the world.


Being your true self is probably one of the hardest things to do, but it is essential to living a happy and fulfilled life. Celebrate all the things that make you who you are, building on your strengths and forgiving your weaknesses. You are special, you are unique, there has never been and will never be another exactly like you because your spot is already taken.
