What does mean 'be yourself(?)'

What does it mean to “be yourself”?

“Stand out” and be different!
Those words were printed in bold on the cover
Of a magazine in the convenience store

What does it mean to “be yourself”?
As a child, I never gave it a second thought
If there was something I didn’t like, I got mad
If there was something I liked, I said so

But we all change, in time
As do the things we want to protect

From a treasure known to only you
To a fa├žade that exists purely to be seen

The more you become an adult
The more you become capable of regret

But you know, despite all that
There are things you start to realize

So I’m just going to be myself
And you can just be yourself, too
I don’t think we need to have
All the answers right from the start

Because I’m not you
Just as you’re not me, so

Join hands with the person passing by
That’s how love starts to bloom
That’s the way it works

I wonder what it means to “be yourself”
Time may pass
But it can’t era…
