“Be yourself” is a piece of really bad advice.
If I get I get angry way too often. Should I be myself?
If I feel like being hurtful towards others, should I be myself?
A piece of better advice is “Use your personality strategically”.
If you are someone who the society has termed as “emotional”, don’t run away from it.
Instead, use these emotions and focus on creating amazing music.
If you are criticized for the fact that you talk too much, don’t run away from that.
Instead, use that skill to start a podcast or a radio show, and use your talking skills to help people.
Let go of all the attributes that don’t add any value to you or others.
But don’t run away from your personality.
Use is strategically.
It will help you.
And it will really help others.
