I write this post as I sit here finishing my green tea, goji berry and honey tea. In this world, there is pressure: pressure to succeed, pressure to be number 1, pressure from your family, your culture, maybe even your country. Pressure all over. Pressure is not good. Too much of it causes people to explode and this explosion will come out in a myriad of ways: alcoholism, drug addiction, sex addiction, violent ways and tendencies, etc. Today, I want to tell you this: be you, do you. We all come here on this Earth for a limited time. If you are in a position to be able to be yourself without putting your life and wellbeing in immense danger, I say do it. Life is too precious to always spend it under pressure to be somebody or something you know you are not. My message today is simple: be you, do you.
