Be Yourself
by Ellen Bailey

Why would you want to be someone else
When you could be better by being yourself
Why pretend to be someone you are not
When you have something they haven't got

Cheating yourself of the life you have to live
Deprives others of that only which you can give
You have much more to offer by being just you
Than walking around in someone else's shoes

Trying to live the life of another is a mistake
It is a masquerade; nothing more than a fake
Be yourself and let your qualities show through
Others will love you more for being just you 

Remember that God loves you just as you are
To Him you are already a bright shining star
Family and friends will love you more too
If you spent time practicing just being you

Let us pray,

Lord, you created each of us in our own unique way.  Help us to see the good in ourselves; to avoid trying to be different and to remember that you love us just the way we are Let us pray to Mary, Our model of humility:

Hail Mary

Full of grace,

The Lord is with you.

Blessed are you among women

and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God,

Pray for us sinners now

and at the hour of our death. Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
