做真實的自己除了上面的Just be yourself 外,不要一字一句翻譯,在英文中還有另外一個表達是"let your hair down"

這說法源自17 世紀。過去,西方女子很多都留長髮,出門社交把頭髮盤在頭上梳出各種式樣來。晚上回家後她們就把頭髮很自然地披在肩上。

To let one's hair down
的實質意思也就是解除表面的裝飾,使一切顯得很自然、真實和放鬆。後來,"let your hair down" (把頭髮散開)就用來表示放鬆、展現真實的自己

Meaning: If you let your hair down, you enjoy yourself by doing whatever you feel like doing and not worrying about what other people might think.

For example:

‧ It was only after the completion of this project that Charles let his hair down.
只有在完成專案後,Charles 才能真正放心、放鬆。
‧ Come on, George! It's Saturday night so why don't you stop being so serious and sensible and let your hair down for a change? (George
,別這樣,周末夜,不要這麼嚴肅理性,放鬆一下,來點小改變!)
