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.
