This isn’t the first time I have posted something along these lines but every day is a journey of self discovery. It is an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and it is a chance to reflect on who we are and what we live for.
I am a massive advocate of being yourself and not worrying what other people thing. Of course nothing in life is black and white and it’s never going to be that simple. The one thing I do know is that sometimes it is easier to try and fit in rather than standing up for what you believe in or just truly being yourself. There will always be situations like this and yes sometimes it will be easier but I encourage you to stand up for what you believe in. Go against the norm. What ever it is that you believe in makes you different from everyone else which is actually pretty cool. I’ve never been one of the ‘cool kids’ and I know what it is like wanting to fit in but there is so much more to life than fitting in.
Being comfortable in yourself and in your own skin is something I would much rather achieve than the ability to fit in. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying go out there and try to be so different that you have no friends I am just scything that you don’t need to be a follower. You have the ability to make your own decisions. You’ve got the strength to be a visionary and with a little bit of hard work you could be the one setting the trends. Don’t end up being nothing. Just be who you are and be comfortable with that!
