Encourage Children to be Themselves

We should encourage our children (and each other) to be yourself. Don’t afraid to show your emotions – whether it’s perceived as being weak, strong, emotional, unacceptable, etc. Denying them is just denying who you are. While others may see revealing your emotions as an act of vulnerability, it’s only by embracing your emotions that you move a step forward toward being who you truly are. The following song lyrics from Return to Innocence is a good reminder. 

That’s not the beginning of the end

That’s the return to yourself 

The return to innocence. 
Don’t be afraid to be weak  Don’t be too proud to be strong  Just look into your heart my friend  That will be the return to yourself  The return to innocence.  If you want, then start to laugh  If you must, then start to cry  Be yourself don’t hide  Just believe in destiny.  Don’t care what people say  Just follow your own way  Don’t give up and use the chance  To return to innocence.  That’s not the beginning of the end  That’s the return to yourself  The return to innocence.  [Don’t care what people say  Follow just your own way  Follow just your own way  Don’t give up, don’t give up  To return, to return to innocence.]  [If you want then laugh  If you must then cry  Be yourself don’t hide 
Just believe in destiny.]

Encourage your children to be themselves! Encourage others by sharing this.
