I watched a very strange interview this week.  It was from the 1970’s and was an amazing little bit.  The person being interviewed was Peter Sellers.  The interviewer was Kermit the Frog.  A master impressionist and comic genius was being interviewed by a puppet.  The puppet said, “Just relax and be yourself.”  Sellers responded, “I can’t be myself, because I don’t know who I really am anymore.”  Peter Sellers life could be summed up in a Smokey Robinson song:  “Ain’t too much sadder than the tears of a clown when there’s no one around….   I’m hurt and I want you to know, but for others I put on a show.”  Hopefully those words aren’t your story too.

This week work toward authentic relationships with those who matter in your life.  Remember: to try to be someone else is to waste the person you were created to be.
