There is no reason to make yourself unhappy simply so that someone else can feel more comfortable.
Without being cruel, insensitive, or mean-spirited, be yourself.
Do not grovel, crawl, or shy away from being who you are.
Be yourself unapologetically.
Others will adapt.
They may even thank you for it.
The world is full of people who are not you.
One more not you is not needed.
We need you to be yourself boldly and bravely.
Listen to your heart’s calling, follow it wherever it leads, and allow your life to be an expression of whatever truth you find along the way.
Live your life as yourself, even if it means going against the flow and disappointing others along the way.
The ones who matter will understand and the ones who do not understand do not matter.
