to {be} yourself or not to {be} yourself.....

that is the question.
People always say....
Be yourself.
Be true to yourself.
Be who you are.
Be happy with who you are.

I wonder….if I were a murderer,
would I receive the same advice?
What about someone who is mean-spirited
and belittles others?
Do we really want them to “be themselves”?
Or would we instead want them to be more like a nice person?

This year, as I discover how to {BE}
I want to keep in mind that being who I should be
Could be someone entirely different from who I am.
