“Always remember that you are absolutely unique.
Just like everyone else.”
When I was a kid I hated that I was different. I had a hard time fitting in. I just didn’t think about or like all the things the other kids did. I thought there was something wrong with me. I wanted to be like everyone else. Then I did this thing called growing up. Like everyone, I did the expected, worked, paid bills and behaved myself. Being like everyone else and fitting in was so boring! I didn’t like it. I was happier being different…being me.
As an adult, I am a lot like everyone else but I have learned it’s okay to be the different me, too. Took awhile and a few missteps before I found my place. My way of life works for me though many may think I am a bit odd. For the most part, I follow the rules but if I think they are dumb rules I ignore them and do my own thing. I may not be happier than a lot of people but I think I am more content than most. Works for me.
Are you uniquely you and who you want to be?
Is it important that you fit in?

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”-Judy Garland
It’s too much work to be anyone but who I am. I found that out a long time ago. Sounds like you like who you are and that’s all that matters.
Yep, I am me and make no excuses. There’s some good and some mistakes and some bad but I do the best I can.
I agree, be you, not someone else. I too am comfortable in my skin. I don’t care what others think. I do my thing, but I am ever aware not to hurt others. Causing no harm makes it easy to be yourself.
Have a fabulous day. ♥
You are a wise woman. It takes way too much energy trying to be someone other than who you are. Best to use our energy being the best person we can be.
