JUST BE YOURSELF – Mum
Considering that my self has a nack for putting my foot in it, miss-judging the etiquette/proceedings of situations then being wildly enthusiastic or really quite shy – depending on wether I’m around friends or strangers – this might not sound like suitable advice.
What my Mum actually meant was don’t compromise yourself to fit in with other people. Always know you are great just the way you are! Play on your own strengths rather trying to guess what the perfect Stepford Wife response is.
Ta Mum, from 11 year old me.
