Hi Claire, I thought about being you but that was already taken. I changed to a couple of other people but was still me!|
If someone wasn't themselves could I thank them for being someone else? Would I then say "Thank you for not being you because if you were who you really are I wouldn't be thankful". Or "your not yourself today, thank you".
Most people are actually several people, happy, sad, funny, mad, which am I thanking them for being? I may say "thank you for being you today but no thank you for being you yesterday".
If I were to follow what I was taught when I was young i.e. to conform and not be different, then one may say "thank you for being us" or "thank you for not being you". I have been told by some "no thank you for being you".
If there were other people like you then one might say to you "thank you for being them". If you just took the parts you liked about people you met throughout your life then someone may say "thank you for being others"
Anyway thanks Claire, thank you for not being someone else and thank you for not being me.
