Being yourself is hard.  Not molding yourself to fit what others expect.  Embracing your quirks, your faults, your fears, and your talents.  Pursuing your passions.  Recognizing what you want and need and not apologizing for it.

For this dose of Monday Motivation I’ve got a couple of quotes from Johann von Goethe and e.e. cummings.  These guys seem to have done some deep thinking on the subject of being oneself.  So, enjoy the quotes and then go out and show the world the real you!

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
~e.e. cummings

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
~e.e. cummings

All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.
~Johann von Goethe

If God had wanted me otherwise, He would have created me otherwise.
~Johann von Goethe
