I found this quote on Facebook today and the entire day it spoke to me. It's almost as if it's explaining the way I've been living LIFE for the past 4 years now.
We encounter so much and converse with so many people that it's a natural thing to deviate away from who you truly are to conform to what others want you to be. So much that we forget what it is that makes us feel TRUE, what makes us the person we truly are inside and out.
At one point do you ever feel like you're an actor for different reasons?
Even the non confrontational part of you makes you not want to show your real heart, just so you wont have to ALWAYS defend yourself...it get's exhausting to want to conform to others let alone want to explain yourself and go into deep conversation every time.
In my case, a lot of the time it can be my sexuality that can set me apart from everyone else, in your case, it can be anything from your heritage, you've been adopted, you grew up in hard times, or even now in this time you're down on your luck while everyone is on a natural high, whatever the case may be, WE ALL have at least 5 close enough friends that we can count on. We have some kind of support system where we can talk, laugh, cry, and even go crazy at times with them without having to change or hide ourselves. We instead bring out ourselves out more and more that we are soon building what is becoming our inner being, our self esteem, our deep rooted smile.
Building LIFE from the inside out is exactly what's needed to bring the natural YOU out into the world. Many opinions will be made, will be said, will be met with expectation...yet to triumph, all it takes is YOU...again, YOU came to this world and YOU are who YOU are for a reason, now is the time to secure that reason and show who YOU are from the interior of your heart to the exterior of your smile. Accept what is yours because it belongs to no one else but YOU!
