Be who you are, not who you think you should be.

I’ve had this thought for a while now, although I couldn’t precisely put my finger on the thought. I was having a conversation today and I came out with this little nugget of wisdom, and saying it felt so right.

When I was a teenager I struggled to get on with people my own age, I just couldn’t be the typical teenager that everyone my age expected me to be, and so I wasn’t.

For the longest time it felt like it was me who should change to fit in, even though I had no intention of doing so, but now I feel more comfortable in my own skin, I don’t feel like I need to prove anything to anyone.  I can just be me, and if anyone thinks I’m odd, I don’t care. I won’t be unhappy being something I’m not on someone else’s disapproval, or inability to understand.

I feel like a lot of people struggle to ‘fit in’ but I don’t think you should try, you should just be who you are, despite what anyone else is doing, or thinking, to be anything else can drive you crazy.

So be you and learn like who you are, despite what anyone else thinks.

    You’re right! The more we try to fit in the more pressurised and insecure we will feel. We should be grateful for all our differences!

  2. You’re right. Trying to meet the expectations of other people will make you miserable and in the end, you’ll always fail (it’s easier to have expectations of someone than it is for that someone to meet them).
