Think back to a time when you were born – with no language, knowledge, speech, or learning.

Think how innocent you were.

You might say that each of us is born equal.

Think how you looked around in awe of your surroundings.

Everything totally new to you.

Contemplate who you were then and who you are now.

Who are you?

The real you.

The “you” beneath the labels?

Here are 50 things you are not.

Who are you?

You are you – just you – totally unique.

You are the blank piece of paper before the story is added.

You don’t need to be the best or perfect or what others want you to be.

The real you is unconditional, pure, free.

Awesome in your individuality.

Brilliant in your talents.

100% totally special.

100% you.

The “you” beneath the labels.
