No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. -Eleanor Roosevelt
At times, well to be honest, most of the time, I feel like I do not belong to any group. I feel like damn why am I trying so hard just to fit in? However, I still try to fit in. Until I saw this tree. It seems like it’s lost among the greens. It looks so out of place. And then a thought hit me. “You are not born to be like everybody else. You are different. Be yourself. Do not blend in. You are born to standout.” It seems like I am a vain person when these thoughts came to me but it makes sense. Why do we keep on seeking approval from the people around us when we do not seem to accept ourselves as who we really are. Why are we trying to so hard to blend in if it goes against our principles and morals? Why are we depending so much on the people who want to change us because they do not like the person we originally were? Why? Why? We brought this to ourselves. Be who you want to be. No one is keeping you but yourself. Do not keep yourself from happiness. Be yourself and you will know what I am talking about. So what if the society does not acknowledge you. So what if you are left out? So what? This is your life. Own it as you live it. Live it like your own.
