How could one forget one’s self? Turning away from whom and what they really are. I am not ashamed of anything regarding myself. And I am not afraid to express what I’m about or what concerns me.
Freedom is a very powerful thing. Liberation is a privilege to take advantage of, yet many do not indulge in the opportunity out of fear, the fear to truly be themselves.
Some, who are different and unique in their behavior, appearance or preference and so on, would rather fit in with the general population than to endure the ridicule and rejection that many individuals face.
So instead of having the courage to reveal who they truly are they compromise themselves to gain acceptance.
In my opinion that is a very empty way to live and to conduct one’s life. It is also very sad.
To me, generality is boring. I find myself more interesting in being unique as I am like no other. I find delight and excitement in what I like even if nobody else does.
When one downplays what they are genuinely about they sell themselves short.
I wouldn’t want to be anything other than me, pretending just to satisfy and to get the approval of others.
People who stoop to that level do not deserve the blessings that come along with having true individuality.
