All others are taken.
“The truth is there is no such thing as ‘normal’, there is just a series of spectrums on which we all fall and how ‘normal’ we are is largely determined by how well our strengths and weaknesses match the social norms of the times we live in”, said R. Boyce
There is no such thing as normal, normal way to think or the right thing to do.
Be yourself and choose the path that’s best for you.
If you unapologetically be yourself people will end up liking you for who you are and you are also more at peace. There is merit is being yourself as this also sets expectations right in the beginning, for yourself as well as for others.
If you wear a mask and project a different self, the act will burden you and cause you unhappiness as well as stress.
Be yourself, the first time and every time. Learn to say ‘no’ when you feel something is not OK.
Be yourself. Those who matter, won’t mind. And, those who mind, don’t matter.
