This above all: to thine own self be true

“This above all: to thine own self be true.” — William Shakespeare

Sometimes we say yes when we mean no. Sometimes we subjugate our feelings and desires because we want to appease. Or we don’t want to be hurtful to someone. We think we are protecting the other person. But usually we are just saving ourselves from an actualization. When in doubt, be true to yourself. There is no explanation or justification needed.
