I’m not sure what it is about wanting to try and follow suite, we all have danced this dance to some degree throughout our lives. It’s a hard line to walk, a tiring line and one that will absolutely hamper your growth and dim your shine.
I find it funny when I scroll the gram, lately this is the area in my life I currently feel this the most. I think it’s crazy how similar others are, same filter overlaying their photos, same look, almost even the same sounding voice comes through on stories. I don’t understand. How can you truly reach your potential if you are reaching for anothers life?
We all have such a unique light to share and let shine yet so many of us dim that glow to try and be like others around us.
It’s ok to have a different color glow! It’s ok to want different things! It’s ok to talk a different way. It is ok to be DIFFERENT! Be uniquely yourself! I wish more would truly be ok with being them. And if you have tried to fit in a square for so long that was created by others I wish nothing more than for you to bust out of that freaking square and remember your beautiful self! The you that isn’t what and who others have created, just you!
Different is real. I am drawn towards people with depth, who are ok with saying what’s on their mind without fear of sounding odd. I love the analogy of looking through a stainglass window and how incredible it is to see each individual piece of glass making out and insanley beautiful image. How much more intresting that is to look at than a single pane of clear glass.
