    Am I supposed to care about social norms

    or am I actually & literally just supposed to be myself? If I "do me", I get looked at as a bad or crazy person. When I show who I really am and no one gets it, it becomes that much easier to hide pieces of me. I'd rather be accepted than lonely. But that's ironic because...

    Everyday is a new opportunity to do better.

    The seed is freshly planted, with only a single green blade peaking above the soil. I hope to cultivate it and make it into a strong tree with the ability to withstand any environmental condition. To live in the moment with optimism.
