Growing up for teenagers and young adults (as in living the truth of who you are, out loud) is seriously hard!
Do you know who you are?
Do you like who you are?
Do you trust yourself?
Is your imagination alive and flowing?
Do you question the world you live in?
Do you speak up honestly for yourself, for your friends and for your beliefs?
Do you live in a physically & emotionally safe family?
Are you relying on other people and things to make you feel good, or make you feel that you matter?
There are many advantages to knowing and accepting who you really are at this point in your life, (including the parts you don’t like or think others won’t like).
#1.You will never have to rely on anything or anyone else to feel ok
#2. You will pick loyal, trusting friends who respect and support you.
#3. You are able to see and grab opportunities when they present themselves in your life.
#4. Life becomes filled with possibility.
Find the courage to express yourself boldly in your family, in school, among your peers, and out there in the larger world.Walk your path honestly, creatively, building, not diminishing, yourself.
