It actually isn't that strange when people aren’t themselves when all that you can see in the media are unrealistic images of the world and people. There is 7.4 billion people on the earth and every single one of them is different. They think, speak look and act different and that is more then okay. I find that being you nowadays is a privilege and not something that is totally normal. I can't even imagine how beautiful world would be if every each of us just shared their thought. We would be so much richer. I used to be afraid to show who I actually am. All the things that I love or my reflections of things. That was all because I thought that if I think certain way or dress differently it’s bad.
There is too many commands that do not allow us to develop into what we are. They put us in a box with no personality. When I finally realized that I don’t need to try to be anybody else because the real me is better and felt so much happier. I was just myself and if somebody didn’t like that it was completely fine because we can’t get on with everybody but we need to respect them. I now have real friends in my life that appreciate who I am and what can I bring to our friendship. Don’t ever try to be somebody else just because you want somebody to like you. You are just doing harm to yourself.
You are beautiful just the way you are and don't ever let anybody to change you.
