How many times in your life have you found yourself copying someone? Not just in the style, but in the behavior also. True, we do have many influences surrounding us, but that should not stop us of being ourselves. Our true self, not a face covered with lies and faking.
It might hit you hard, but nothing will save your from this world other than being yourself, believing that what you do is great , and what you believe in is the right thing, even if you’re the only one standing for it. The true power is standing up even if the whole world disagrees. Whether it is your dream, thought, or belief, you are the one who is in control of all that and nobody else other than you. Set your mind, go for what you really want, do not let anyone stop your from achieving something which you believe will make you the person who you want to be.
Let your star shine. Be your own person, don’t worry what people think of you. Only the fools will laugh at you, but true people will support you. Don’t give up, don’t fall back. Stand up again and face your fears. Don’t be someone who you aren’t; people will love your true self, if you show it. Remove that mask and that make-up splattering your face. You never know how many will fall in love.
It is true braveness to stand alone for what you believe. But first you have to believe in yourself. “Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something. If you want something, go get it. Period.” You don’t have to do something just because everyone else is doing it, like smoking, or whatever it is, you name it!
