Are You Being Yourself?

September 13, 2018

So many doctors hide parts of themselves from their colleagues – even their family and friends – for fear of being judged. It’s time to stop hiding… 

Are you being 100% yourself? Or are you hiding the real ‘you’?


– – Hello my lovely, it’s Dr. Sally Graddon, the Life Balance Doctor, here.

Are you being yourself? Are you living and showing up in every area of your life as yourself, wholly and truly?

So many doctors that I work with are hiding parts of themselves, afraid to reveal their passions or their interests for fear of judgement .

Many are passionate about an alternative approach to healthcare, for example, but simply don’t feel safe enough to talk about it. Others have passions completely outside of medicine, but feel embarrassed talking about it. Put simply, they don’t feel safe being themselves.

Hiding big chunks of yourself often feels like the easiest path, at least in the beginning, but in the long run it is incredibly damaging.

When you deny your truth, when you sanitise your beliefs, your interests, or your skills to try and fit in, you are denying a part of yourself. You are saying that it’s not okay to be you, that you have something to be ashamed of even, and you don’t. You see, magical things happen when you reveal your truth and allow yourself to fully step into the true and whole expression of you.

That is who you are. That is who you are meant to be. Not a shadow of yourself.

Allow your gifts to shine, and own them because you’ll never be truly happy unless – and until – you do.

If you’d like help being yourself, and showing up in this world as the truly incredible, multifaceted human being that you are, get in touch. I’d love to help.

Take care my lovely.
