|I will take on the world as I am. There is no changing me. I have tried and it only causes me stress. I am a square peg in a circular world. It is impossible to be who I am if I keep trying to be someone else. Acceptance is elusive when I act differently just to make someone happy. It's depressing, and taxing pleasing other people. I don't believe there is anything wrong with who I am. I don't have to be a specific way to achieve what I want in life. No one is perfect. It's no use trying to attain that goal. I know with the talents and gifts I've been given, however small they may seem. I will be a beacon for those who choose to be themselves as well. My purpose will be identified more likely when I am older and nearing the end of my life. So for now I will make decisions based on what I believe is right. I will be happy because I choose to be not because something equals that happiness but because I choose it. By that example I will bring others out of their shell and encourage them to take on the world as I have. I don't want others to be anything but what they choose. Like I said it's uncomfortable being someone else when you know that's not who you are inside. I am a leader. I can't lead people if I don't know where I am going.|
