This is permission to be yourself, though you never needed it.
--- Be weird. Be unique. Be you. ---
What does it mean to be yourself? It means finding what you value, love, and cherish - and then forming your life around those things without worrying about what anyone else thinks.
Every day and every moment, you are given choices; These choices give you the freedom to redefine who you are.
YOU ARE NOT THE OPINION OF OTHERS.
Remember: You are an amazing being who has come so far.
Whether you have made it through heartache and strife, grief and loss, or just the challenges of being human, be proud of yourself for coming this far.
PLEASE let this be your sign to live your life free of the opinion of others.
THERE IS ONLY ONE YOU
and that is your superpower!
Unfortunately, when you harness this superpower, you will likely attract the people in this world who are full of darkness. They hide behind masks to deceive others and actively seek to take light from those who live unabashedly as their true selves.
Do not let them take your light.
What someone else says about you does not change your life. It does not have to change your path or your destination.
One of the best ways to shine bright is to spread your light to others. As Whoopi Goldberg wisely said, "We're here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.”
Living free from worrying about others gives you a unique ability to be an example to others to show that it is okay to be yourself and live your life as you design.
