"About all you can do is be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won't like you at all." Rita Mae BrownIt's true. Anyone who would ask you to be something other than yourself isn't worth your time. And when you find people who love you for you, cherish them.
It isn't always easy. I know. We are humans who need social contact, and sometimes that means we feel like we need to force ourselves to fit in. But the more we push back, the more likely we are to find the people who love our true selves. And the more we'll encourage others to step out of their limitations.
