I spent hours recently going through all the reasons to avoid trying to be someone else.

My friend kept comparing herself to those she idolized.2

Of course, she always felt like she was coming up short.

The truth is, you'll never be exactly like those you admire.

Before you spend years trying, take a look at just a few of the reasons to avoid trying to be someone else.

You might just find you're even more amazing than your idols.

1. It's Not Physically Possible

Whether you want to look or act like someone else, there will always be something about you that's different.

It's one of the most obvious reasons to avoid trying to be someone else.

You are destined to fail no matter how hard you try.

You can be similar to someone, but in the end, you'll always have noticeable traits that make you different.

Why set yourself up for failure when you don't have to?

2. You'll Never Be Happy

You were born to be you and no one else.

When you try to force yourself to transform into another person, you'll always feel out of place and uncomfortable.

You might look happy on the outside, but you'll always feel less than happy.

It may seem fun for a little while to be someone else, but the glamor fades quickly and you're left wondering who you really are.

You deserve to be happy and you'll only be happy as yourself.

3. It Causes Long Term Emotional Problems

What happens if you constantly fail at something?

Odds are, you start to sink into a depression.

Many people who spend their lives focused on becoming just like another person end up with long term emotional stress.

They have depression, anxiety issues and even anti-social tendencies.

All this creates for you is a miserable life.

You have a wonderful life ahead.

Live it instead of someone else's.
