To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
e. e. cummings
How true is the above quote. I feel at times that the world just doesn’t like me. Magazines, articles, tv programmes telling me I should be slimmer, dress better, have the perfect style.
Simply telling me to be different.
That who I am isn’t good enough.
But the truth is that is all lies.
We are all exactly who we are meant to be.
Ok yes of course being slimmer would be nice, a new wardrobe of clothes very welcome.
But who I am isn’t found in my appearance it is found in my heart.
Look deep inside do I like what I see?
This is the question I am asking myself today.
If there are changes I need to make I will make them for me not for the persona the world wants to create.
It’s not easy, it’s a daily battle.
My grandad once told me that I had an issue with conformity. That I saw it as a challenge.
Maybe he is right, to be honest I haven’t a clue, but for a long time I tried to be the person I believed others wanted me to be and it left me so unhappy.
So now I’m on a quest to be me.
The person I was meant to be.
