There is so much talk about "being yourself" these days. It is an admirable notion, and well worth doing if you LIKE who you are.
I am all for being cool with who you are, without reservation, and free of self-condemnation. This is ideal. The problem is that YOU, the you that you look at in your mirror, the you that you are encouraged to "be," probably isn't really "you." The chances are, on a physical level, you have never really spent any time finding out who "you" really are.
