Part IV of you do you by Sarah Knight

Part IV: SHOULDS & SHOULDN’TS: Much too much obliged

You should always put family first

“Love and respect should be consistently earned” (230).


“Mental redecorating doesn’t change who you are, only how you cope” (234).


“It’s okay to prioritize choice over a sense of obligation” (239).

You shouldn’t act so crazy

“So my advice to you is that it’s okay to “act crazy”–and it might even be necessary” (254).

You should smile more

“Not letting “nice” get in the way of defending yourself, your values, or the truth” (263).


“Employing straightforward politeness to achieve your goals” (263).

You shouldn’t eat that *I”ll take extra cheese, please 

“You need to accept yourself before you wreck yourself” (271).


“Because it’s not about changing your body, it’s about changing your mind” (274).

You should check your ego at the door

“A healthy sense of self-esteem is not a flaw, and confidence is the greatest strength you can cultivate” (283).


“Accepting who you are and acting with confidence. You Do You also means accepting other people for who they are” (290).



It’s in all caps in the book and takes up two pages. It’s important to be yourself because it’s not worth it to be anyone else–there’s also no point to it!
