Just be your fucking self—truer words were never spoken. In the world we live in today, there are so many pressures to be apart of the hive: where you go to school, what you look like, who you're friends with, etc., and sometimes, to fit in, those pressures can hollow you out, and eat away at any shred of self-esteem you have left. By constantly comparing ourselves to the next person: what they have, how they dress, where they are in life, we do a disservice to ourselves. Admittedly, it's incredibly hard to feel satisfied in a society that constantly has us craving and striving for more, but, a lot of the times, when you really examine where you are in life, you're exactly who and where you need to be. A quote that always sticks with me is, 'Imitation is suicide,'—meaning, when you are so wrapped up in being just like everyone else, you kill off the things that make you you. We all have those little things about ourselves that we wish we could change, so that we can feel accepted, but, as you get older, and you grow, you'll realize that those things actually make you unique. Each of us are fighting something, no one's struggle or journey is more important than the next. There comes a point, when you finally tell yourself that you just want to be happy the way you are. Going day to day worrying about things you can't change, being destructive, getting in your own way, and being a willing participant in your own demise aren't ways to live. There's nothing wrong with wanting to fit in, that's human nature, just be sure that the place you want to carve into the world is your own—just be your fucking self, and you will attract the right friends, the right career, the right everything. It's a struggle to stay on a path, when you aren't sure where it leads you to, but, take it day by day, you'll be surprised where you end up.
