You Can’t Try To Be Who You Are

….that was a line from an article that I read today.  It was an article about a band, and they were criticizing the band for sounding too much like —- themselves.  The response was that you can’t try to be who you are.  You just are who you are.  You can’t put in any more effort to be – you.  But you have to be present with yourself to know it.

The moment you start trying to be who you (think you) are is the moment that you start becoming someone that you are not – because you are trying.  You don’t have to try to be yourself.
