Just be yourself! And ruin society…

VeronicaVeronica is my evil twin and alter ego. For some sick reason I let her take over my blog on Fridays so she can spew her opinions, rants and advice. Let’s see what she has to say about the Seven of Swords…

Have you ever been told by some well meaning twit to “just be yourself”?

And did you think “but if I was truly mySELF, I wouldn’t be here doing this stupid shit in the first place.”

So here’s the thing…

No one actually means it when they say “be yourself” – what they really mean is that your current performance of going through the motions of everyday, mind-numbing life is less convincing than it should be.

It’s not enough that you toil away at a meaningless job, suffer monogamy, engage in inane chit chat with others and pay tax, insurance, processing fees, administration fees and licensing fees.

You must do this with genuine enthusiasm! Or at least convince others that you are genuine.

Nothing brings the morale down like someone who just can’t be bothered to pretend anymore.

So what if you actually did start acting more like your real self? What would it look like? What would you stop doing? What would you start doing? And best of all….how would it mercilessly shred the fabric of society?

    Hahaha! I just came across your blog and I love the Veronica posts. So sassy and hilarious 🙂 Makes me want to try to channel my alter ego when I do card readings! I get so serious and spiritual most of the time, but I’m sure there’s a sassy pants alter ego that would do things very differently.

      Glad your enjoying Veronica 😉 And I know you have a wild alter ego within you, too! I used to find myself saying serious, spiritual things during readings, too….I got frustrated with that and POOF! Veronica was born.

    I have realised as I’ve gotten older that this is so true. People don’t want you to be yourself, they want you to just conform. My response to that is ‘NEVER!’
