    I am a guy who can actually change

    after everything I, and everyone else I know been through. I can honestly say that my most proud moments make me confused right now since I'm not even sure how I got there once I look back. Even when I fall, I won't make it easy because it only brings you down.

    being different from other people is ok

    because you gain more power then others of the different ways that you are different. Also by being different gives you a lot more courage then before you were maybe normal or who you were before you changed to become different.
