Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
Each one of us has a right to be whom they wish. That’s it! There are no exceptions or special rules, and no it’s not subjective. Be whomever yo wish to be. The only suggestion I’ll make is to be that person through and through.
Do not hide the real you away. Do not sit in the dark for fear of reprisal or ridicule. No other opinion matters in this world except for yours. If someone does not like who you are, then that is their problem. As long as you love you, then the right people will naturally gravitate to you.
If someone turns their back on you for being who you truly are inside, then you deserve better and they sure as hell do not deserve you. So, stop hiding. Come out and play! The world is waiting!
